Dress em up in old t shirts...give em some paint and a blank wood birdhouse & let them go to town!

I thought the little one wouldn't be ready for such a craft (she's only 19 months old) but she knew what to do right away...even asked for 'mo paint'  Cheesy

Very cute pictures. It was fun to scroll down and see their looks of concentration!

Thanks guys!  Smiley

I thought I should mention that we're using acrylic craft paint...I'll clearcoat the houses when they're done drying & hang them up in our yard. Hopefully we'll get some new neighbors! Wink

Cute kiddos and what great little artists they are!

Great idea, I am going to have to get my munchkin to paint birdhouses for his grandmas (and the great grandmas too).  I think you just helped me take care of some Christmas/birthday gifts.

It's wild what kid's pick up on without you realizing it.  We made cookies a few months ago with our 2.5 year old and he had never seen cookies made with cookie cutters before (as far as I knew, I usually make drop cookies), but as soon as I handed him a cookie cutter he put it right into the rolled out dough like he had been making cookies for years.

Yeah, I know what you mean...we were at the craft store and went by all the 'naked' wood stuff and my little guy said he wanted a birdhouse. I said, 'what do you want one of those for?' And he replied, 'well, for the birds at home.'

You just can't say no to that kind of reasoning!  Cheesy

What a great set of pictures.  The birdhouses are rockin' too.  Looks like you all had so much fun.
