Waterpainting Outside

Here's a very simple project we did yesterday. I used our outdoor easel and set up a cup of water and some watercolor paints for M. He kept saying "We're painting outside, Mommy!" Which was a little strange since this was certainly not the first time we've painted outside. Oh well, the mind of a toddler is a mystery sometimes. He also kept saying "This is art, Mommy, not for the birdies to eat." And again, I say, the mind of a toddler...

Here's how it turned out:

The more vivid areas are from him dipping his finger into the water and then into a color and fingerpainting onto the paper. It turned out pretty nice, I think. I hope the birdies don't want to eat it!
Have a beautiful day! ;)
