painting on a big canvas

I saw this idea and thought it was worth a try.  I was initially planning to check out my local thrift store but my father generously gave me this canvas for the project....perfect.

I took washable paint and watered them down slightly as I wanted the paint to run. My daughter tends to paint the same spot over and over so I figured if the paint ran a little, it would give a different look.  I used sponge paint brushes (that's all had in the house) and gave her 2 colours any more would have been too much. I also rotated the canvas so that more of the canvas would be covered. She had so much fun painting and now we have a great piece of art hanging in our hallway.
