Toddler Art: Painting on Canvas

Michael's had some large canvases on sale (2 for $5) a few weeks ago so I picked up some to use for some simple art activities.  Sweet Girl loves to paint, but has never painted on canvas before! 

She had such a fun time painting and made a couple of beautiful masterpieces. 

We did the majority of the painting outside since I knew it would end up pretty messy.  I loved to watch her explore with the paint.  First she began the typical way of painting, then moved into splattering the paint around on the canvases, followed by finger painting and then eventually body painting.

Luckily, she also enjoyed cleaning up herself and our deck!  It turned out to be quiet a fun little afternoon and kept her occupied for over an hour (which I think is a world-record for toddlers!!).

And now we have some super colorful art in our kitchen!!  Don't you just love toddler art???
