Art group made watercolor valentines today. Aren't they beautiful? A few notes for future: (1) these liquid watercolors are great, (2) cardboard works well as a protective barrier for the floor, (3) taping down the paint cups (applesauce/yogurt containers) prevents spills with the younger ones, (4) must invest in some good watercolor paper for future projects, and (5) be prepared to move quickly. The kids pumped out one valentine after another at a very quick pace which kept the mamas moving this morning...refilling paint, cutting out more hearts, trying to find enough drying spots,etc. We left most of them in the closet to dry. Can't wait to see how they will look when totally dry.
