|Em's first masterpiece completed by herself|
The next night for Aiden's bedtime story he picked out the book "Little Cloud" by Eric Carle.
If you haven't read it before it's pretty much about a little cloud leaving the big clouds and turning into different shapes or objects. While I was reading it I thought that the next day we could paint the little cloud turning into what we wanted it to turn into.
After Emma had the experience of sitting at the big table with Aiden having fun, there was no way she was letting us do this without her. So she painted with Aiden until her hands got dirty (which she is not a fan of). Her favorite part to do was dip the paintbrush in the paint over and over again whether it was out of paint or not. Aiden's favorite thing to do...cover the entire paper in paint, of course!
|I can paint right here??|
|Dipping her paintbrush over and over again|
|I love the concentration|

|Emma's cloud, Aiden thinks it's an airplane|

|My little cloud is supposed to be a hot air balloon. Stop laughing! I hear you!|
