stART: Little Boy Blue

I’m so glad to be getting back to creating Nursery Rhyme projects.  You have no idea how happy this makes me.

Supplies needed: printout below, watercolors, poster paint, manila paper or whatever you’ll be putting this on, glue, scissors, yarn, cotton balls

Little Boy Blue

At the time I’ve started writing this we haven’t completely finished it…….  We’ll see if that changes after nap.

1.  Paint the pictures from the printout with watercolor.  Okay, so you could just do crayons or some other such, but I wanted to do water colors that day.  Poor Princess, really is not happy here, is she?  She so needed a nap at that point.

2.  Paint the background you’ll be gluing the pictures on.  I drew an outline of the haystack to paint, and a line to delineate the sky and the grass.  Wow, poor Princess really is not having a good day here, is she?  She was mad at me because I told her she couldn’t use pink paint.  I’m so mean.

As you can see, Superman really started to get into this.

Eventually Princess solved her dilemma by deciding she was going to paint her hand instead.

And here’s the abandoned project while they take naps and it dries waiting for the next step.  This will all too soon not look so peaceful.

I’ll finish this post when we finish the project……..  And besides my music is done so that’s my cue to clean my hopelessly messy kitchen.

Oops, I meant to schedule this for tomorrow.  This is what happens when you hurriedly hit publish…..  That and I originally forgot to put in the printouts.  Now I’ve done that.

  1. I am looking forward to seeing the end results. I love craft projects that are inspired by literature. I also thought you are one very brave woman when I saw Princess painting in a white cardigan. I guess it all comes out in the wash!

    I have just read about the surgery for Princess. I hope that she is recovering well and that she is not frustrated with her casts. I will be keeping all of your family in my prayers as Princess recovers from this surgery.

  2. Oh, we need to be friends. I've got twins and then a boy 16 months younger. (plus some others thrown in for good measure.) I totally get that struggle. And I love how crafty you are with your kids! I'm such a coward about the arts and crafts. I will read to them all day but please, for the love of all that is holy, do not make me use a glue stick! I will be watching for more ideas! So impressed!

  3. I always love reading your posts they make me smile! I am really looking forward to seeing the end result. Nursery Rhymes are so much fun, Emily loves them, I would love to start a nursery rhyme book project soon.

    Thank you for linking up to stART!!!
