My little Piccaso and Monet...

Let me introduce two upcoming creative little boys... The first four are by Nolan and the last four are by Braydon.

They love to draw, color, and paste!

Aww...I love seeing their pictures at work! I look forward to seeing others as well. I bet your fridge looks like it doesn't have doors!LOL said...

I have a large collection of similiarly-themed pieces of art. My wife thinks I should save just a few pieces to represent an entire period, but I can't part with any of them.

Good job, Nolan!

Good job, Braydon!

Grandma Kathleen says "Great job, Nolan and Braydon." You are going to be an artist like your grandmother. I have always loved working with my hands they must have my genes.
This would be a ideal time to introduce them to water paints and even play dough for making snakes or litte people.
The secret ingredient here is cream of tartar. This recipe makes play dough that is not grainy like uncooked play dough and keeps for a long time.

Play Dough Recipe 1
4 cups flour
1 cup salt
4 cups water
4 tablespoons oil
1/2 cup cream of tartar
food coloring

Mix all ingredients in a sauce pan. Cook and stir over low/medium heat until play dough is completely formed and no longer sticky. Allow to cool slightly before storing in an air tight container or zip lock bag.

Add one package of unsweetened powdered Kool-Aid to your playdough to give it a great smell.

Thanks for the recipe! The boys love play dough! Mom and Dad do too. LOL We have introduced them to some paints....the ones that stay clear until they go on special paper.
