We stenciled handprints on Amelia' chair. That's the short version.

She had "school" this morning, as she called it. She wrote letters, learned what a spiral was, and learned "outline" while we were outlining her hands... which lead to outlining on Contact paper and spray painting her camping chair.

If you live in New York then you know it won't stop raining for more than 5 second the last few days, so as soon as I set the chair outside it started misting, then I had to run in for a trash bag to cover the chair from [most of] the overspray. By the time I realized the chair is made with some crazy fabric contact paper won't stick to very well, real raindrops were falling, so I figured forget crisp outlines, and sprayed and ran inside with it.

Anyway, she's very excited to have her handprints on her chair [we've been stenciling everything is sight for days] because she's learned that as she gets bigger her hands will get bigger than the outlines. Still want to add her name, but with the freaking rain that may be awhile! And the point of using contact paper is that the edges are usually very crisp, so don't look at this if you never used it and think it gives fuzzy edges Grin

she loves it-
