Painting Outside

Rylee is in love with anything artsy or crafty.  She loves to stick stickers on paper, paint, color, draw, cut with scissors, glue, play with play-doh and anything else involving art supplies.


Last week we decided to try painting outside.  I pinned a piece of paper to a box and let her go at it.  She loved every moment of it.  We have no spill paint cups from discount school supplies and matching paint brushes.  We also use crayola kids paint as it is the best paint out there!  So easy to clean up and never stains.




I am usually very stingent about keeping the right paint brush in the right cup and not letting her mix the colors in the paint cups.  However on this day, we let loose.  I opened all the cups and let her go.  She had so much fun, and I must say she did fairly well at keeping the colors seperate.

Over the summer I realized we hadn’t done many crafty/arty projects other then just coloring and drawing.  We are trying to change that in preparation for the long winter that is to come.


  1. It looks like Miss Rylee got her mama's creative bone! Cute pictures!

  2. I see that you comment on Jodee and Michelle's blogs but I don't think I have ever been by. I saw your comment on Michelle's blog about camping so I had to check out your site. We love to camp!

    Your daughter is a sweetie, great idea to move the paint in the garage!
