Painting our Tree
I used aluminum foil as a pallet and spread on the pink paint. I then helped Ethan dip his finger tips in the paint and helped him dab it on the paper.
I'm not usually a big fan of directing where he puts the paint, so you can see that there are some smears where I let him add his own personal touch (maybe my favorite part of the whole tree!) Afterwards, I gave him some more paper and let him paint his heart out in his own way.
After the paint dried, I used a pencil to sketch out the trunk and branches, and then painted them while Ethan was napping (yeah, he napped today- amazing stuff!)
When he woke up, we used the same technique as the flowers to paint the grass.
I think it turned out really well, and even though he had some help, he really seemed to like looking at the tree after it was finished. It's a great example of how today Ethan and I worked together to create something really cool! :)
