For the Birds

Good morning!  This is Kendra, my post today isn't a project from me, but rather my creative little guy who loves crafting with me.  Thought I would share something a little different and fun that we did together this summer!

My little guy LOVES being outside helping me in my flower beds and feeding the birds!  For part of his birthday gift, his great-grandparents gave him a birdhouse.  He was so excited!  My aunt mentioned that he should paint it!

Well you don't tell a 3year old that as they don't forget much, which is okay!  So he has been on my case to paint it! So I got out a bunch of paints and just let him go to town!

He had so much fun!  He kept telling me, "This is going to be so pretty!  The birds are going to love it!  They're going to have lots of babies in it!" lol Too cute!

He decided to leave it dry and asked me, "Mommy, it would look really pretty with your special paints!" Referring to my Creative Inspirations Paints!  He always enjoys watching me craft with them.  And went on to say, "I'll be careful and just use a little."  How could I say no?!?!

So I decided to let him use a few of them to add his own shimmer to the birdhouse, he was so happy!
 Just look at the shimmer!!!  I let him use Fairy Dust, Buttercup, Rose Quartz, Royal Purple, Turquoise and Mango.

Finished Birhouse:

All proud of his creation!

My husband then sealed it for us, so that he could hang it outside! It sure is shimmery when the sun shines on it!

Hanging up in the tree, waiting for a bird!
You can see right where he used the CI Paints here on the front side!  So shimmery!!

Hope you have enjoyed this post today, have a nice day!
