This is a picture of my kids from at least six years ago. Art has always been a part of my parenting not just because I love it, but because the kids do too!
On this day I let them paint an entire tablecloth. I felt like I was watching performance art. By the end, their clothes and feet and even their hair were covered in paint. They had a great time.
After the cloth dried, I chose my favorite section of it and framed it in a large 2' x 3' frame. It became the major focal point at the top of our stairs in our home. I never tired of walking by and admiring that painting!
