painting on canvas

The weather here has been really great which was perfect for painting outside. We bought 11" x 14" canvases and just used inexpensive acrylic paints. I watered down the paints so that they would run and also to be a bit transparent, since toddlers love to paint the same spot over and over. We let each colour dry and then painted the next colour.  The paintings turned out great and the girls had lots of fun painting them. What a great activity.
