Weekend Art: Happy Heart

I am trying to enjoy doing more crafty things with my children.  I enjoy creating art.  They enjoy creating art.  It is a version of primal handicraft that we all like.  We just don't always make the time to do it together.  Last weekend, I was determined to paint while they painted.  It was theraputic until 2 of the 3 ended up in tears because I made the error of doing it right before nap/quiet time.  But I'm still glad we did it.  I let them paint whatever they wanted.  Here's what I made.

What can I say?  I have preschoolers.  We are into rainbows and hearts around here :)

I used the same materials as my children: crayola washable kids' paint, q-tips, and paper.  When it had dried, I cut it out and glued it to the solid side of a brown paper bag.  I put it in a painted wooden frame, minus the glass.  I am not a big Valentine's Day person, but there are just so many fun things you can make for the "holiday".  I may leave this up year round, though.

This makes me happy.  Call me a kid at heart.
