cheap entertainment

Whenever we start to feel couped up in the house, we take some paints and go out on the front patio.


The girls LOVE to paint.  When the weather isn't permitting, which isn't very often, we use watercolors in the house.  Those are the only kind my heart can handle being indoors.

From the pictures below you will see why we don't use this paint indoors.

At first, Emily is cool and collected.  But, give her some time and she will have painted all the surfaces around her.


Bella will remain pristine the entire time.  She will get the paint on the paper and no where else.


But since we are outside, the water hose will take care of any damage that is created.  That gives them the right to fully express themselves.

Painting is so much fun, especially outdoors! Two years ago, one of my neighbors brought the kids a bunch of paints and a HUGE cardboard box. My kiddies painted for hours outside on the sidewalk and everything else. My window sill still has some of that paint. LOL

What great memories you're creating for your girls. :)

I wish we lived closer so they could all paint together!
