In an effort to keep the girls from getting bored and behaving like maniacs, I’ve been doing my best to get us out of the house on a daily basis. Since I’m too chicken to attempt a trip to the beach with just the girls and myself, we tend to stick with indoor activities or walks to the parks in our neighbor. Last week, we got kinda crazy and made an afternoon trip to the arts & crafts center on post to paint some ceramic pieces. I was a tad worried about taking the girls to a new place filled with all sorts of breakable little figurines, but it ended up not being bad at all.
The first thing we did when we arrived was pick out what we were going to paint. There was a huge selection of items in the $10 range. Both girls chose a unicorn and I chose a pretty little fish.
I had high hopes for my little fishy friend. Since the girls rushed through painting their pieces and more or less just covered their unicorns in random colors, I had to hurry up and finish before they got bored of waiting around for me.
If I had had more time, I probably would have paid more attention to detail and done a better job with the coloring of the scales. No bigs though. I’m still pretty happy with how it turned out. I definitely plan on making more trips to paint ceramics in the future. However, now I know that if I go with the girls, I’ll have to paint something less complicated.
Anyone else enjoy painting ceramic stuff as much as I do?
