Making Valentines

Eleanor had a Valentine's Day party at day care last week so she was supposed to bring in valentines for all her friends. The other day I got out some paint and paper for her to start making her valentines. She did a great job for the most part painting on paper, but that only lasted about 15 minutes.

After some time, she started painting her hand and her stomach - thank goodness I decided to leave her shirt off for this activity!

The she decided she wanted to eat the (non-toxic) paint, so I had to take the paint brush away. She definitely threw a fit when I took away the brush.

All in all a great activity for the morning with some great results.
