The "project" started off well with both girls dipping their hands in the paint and getting to work. Soon, however, Olivia was upset because her hands were "dirty." So, we had to clean them off. Then, clean them off again. Then, Olivia dipped a hand towel in the dog's water to clean off her hands. I slowly became frustrated. I was hoping to just sit back and snap some pictures and enjoy the live show.
Lila had a great time; the entire time. Once again, she had to taste test each color.
I took finger paint paper, when the girls were finished with their window master pieces, and pressed them up against each girl's "design." So, we now have copies of their window art on paper and on film.
Clean up wasn't as easy as I had anticipated. However, that's only because our spray nozzle is broken on our hose and I couldn't get enough power using my finger.
In the end, after baths and lunch, the girls went right down for naps with barely a fuss. Lila, actually, came up to me and rested her head on my shoulder, practically begging for a nap. This is the child who slept 13-hours straight last night and didn't wake up until 9:00am. By noon, she was sacked out. Any project, even if it's a bit messy, is worth it if it can tire my girls out and prepare them for long naps!I have to thank ToddleBits, once again, for providing an entertaining project idea!
