Se7en Fabulous FingerPaints…

January 8th, 2011 · 5 Comments

So it has been roasting hot here and apart from school we have been doing pretty much nothing… all we could really rustle up in the crafty department was some finger painting… I left some paints and markers on the table and everyone made a strip…

    I love this! I was eyeing that book recently on Amazon.com, wondering if it was any good. Now I’ll definitely check it out!

    Hi Kiasa, It really is a fabulous book and I think we may be making projects from it again and again!!! I have wanted a copy for ages, for myself, and a nine year old daughter was the perfect excuse!!!
