Unplug your kids.....Flat.
This week the theme for unplug your kids was flat. Ok I was having the usual difficulty of what to come up with. Well then Gabe had to go and fracture his elbow. Ideas just became a little more difficult. I wanted to come up with something he could do to. After all he did not fracture it on purpose, all though he makes me wonder sometimes, just kidding. He actually did say the other day though that he wanted to break his other arm. That was until I told him that it hurts when he does that. His reply was ok I won't then. Silly kid. Alright enough of the side track, back to the project. I finally found a project when I saw this. I mean paintings are flat, so that works right.

Well Since Gabe has a cast on his arm I did want to det it all dirty so I though using his feet to paint would be perfect. This was the little area that I set up so they did get paint all over the rug. I even add in a couple of chairs so that they did not fall. (No need for more cast around here)
Sam was a little hesitant at first because the paint was cold on his feet. He enjoyed the feeling of it though.
Gabe loved the project and was trying to do it just like Sam. So Cute.
The boys got to this point and then decided they need to put there feet in it. And they sure did. Check out there finished products.
Sam's picture is on the top. Gabe's is on the bottom. I think it is cute how they came out so much a like. They alway try to be like each other.
Well the boys loved doing it so much they asked to it again. So it will be a definate project again this week. Make sure to check back for next weeks project. Until then check out everyone else's project over here.

Yay! I'm glad the boys had fun with foot-painting. :)

I'm glad Gabe liked his package too!

Wow, trip on a sandal and break your elbow??? I guess we've been lucky around here. You were so brave to paint in a pool in your living room! :)

Very cool!
Now P wants to know if she can
have a "pool" in our living room!
(I'm not blaming you exactly)

I have a post about foot painting somewhere. Sean hated it! lol I'll bet me oldest and my niece would enjoy it though. I hope Gabe heals up quickly!

Oh, my goodness! What a fun, fantastic idea! I'm sure if my son sees this he'll want to try it, too, but maybe we'll try it in the bathtub where cleanup will be easy. :)

That is so fun!! My kids would love that, except they would probably end up turning it into body art. *grin*

We painted with our feet this morning too, but I am not brave enough to do that in the living room. The pool is a ingenious way of containing the mess.

That looks like fun! We'll have to try it.

My daughter has enjoyed doing a similar project - we put on music and she dances with the paint on the paper - she loves doing that! Looks like they had fun.
