Here is the first project for some wall art for the kids room. I bought two 12"x12" canvases at Michael's last week for $4.79 each. Then six small bottles of paint for $.85 each.
I started by painting one canvas yellow for Madyson and one blue for Nathan.
I let Nathan start by painting his canvas with green and orange. Then, we added his hand prints in red.
For Madyson, I did her foot prints in purple and green. I wanted to do her hand prints, but I thought it would be too difficult to keep her hands open.
After both canvases were dry, I took paint markers (which I had previously purchased for a different project) and added their names to the top of the canvas.
Total for this project was around $15, but I have lots of paint left over for some additional projects. Once I have the room complete, I will add pictures with these on the wall.
