Art Project

We got to keep Avery at our house for a few days last week.  Fun times!  I had several things in mind for us to do while she was here.  This was one of them.  I saw this idea on the idea place... Pinterest of course.  Anyway here is what you need.  (Those are sticky backed letters) 
 So you just get a canvas and spell out the name.  Then let them paint all over it.

She chose to start with pink.  I wasnt surprised.
We let it dry a little in between colors so that it wouldnt turn into a black mush.   

 Paint the whole thing.  Dont forget the sides, and then let it dry.

When its completely dry just carefully peel off the letters.

After that I put a shiny sealer over the top.   She was quite pleased with her art project and couldnt wait to show mommy and daddy.

 After a day of activities with Nonna (or Nonny, as she seems to be calling me now) a girl gets a little worn out.
