The Paint Party -retro post

Reto post!! I have thrown a Paint party for the last three years. It is one of my kids favorite things we do. I don't know if it will happen this year but if you’re looking for something fun to do, this is it! Turn your backyard into a true art experience. All it takes is three jugs of washable paint, some old sheets, paper and a have fun attitude. Nothing was off limits. The kids and the moms had a blast.




















The fence of our backyard was covered with paper and old sheets















I recycled pieces of cardboard for take home canvases
















Full body painting - 16 pieces of poster bored taped together















Sugar cookies and marshmallows became works of art with sweetened condense milk and food coloring .















For clean up I gave the kids sponges and filled up the baby pool.
