Yummy and I spent this snowy morning doing some finger painting. Though Dooter is outgrowing his morning nap, he is especially tired lately from fighting off a cold as well as enjoying a busy weekend of visiting. I cherished this quiet art making time with Yummy, knowing that these calm and easy mornings are soon coming to a close. Artmaking with Dooter is anything but calm and easy -mostly stressful and incredibly messy, with fun moments here and there.

This was a simple and fun activity for a snowy morning. I squeezed paint (Christmas colours, which are complimentary colours on the colour wheel!) and generous dollops of glitter onto a palette for each of us and we painted 15 gift bags. Yummy started out with finger printing, like me, but it soon became whole-hand painting.
I absolutely love these ones! I would have predicted that the paint would turn brown from mixing complimentary colours, but they stayed quite colourful and lovely, with beautiful textured lines from Yummy's fingers.
Here are a few beauties, hanging to dry:
