Painting rocks


Today we decided to paint rocks!

This might sound silly but it was fun and cheap!


Kyler loves bringing a few rocks inside anyways so when I had him gather a few he was excited to help!


We used easy washable painting sponge tubes… I forget what they’re called at the moment. They’re also scented so he ends up with a few dots in his nose because he can’t resist the smell! 🙂

This was a fun, mess free project that I could definitely see doing again if he wanted!


Big brother nursery gift

We had these three boxes to hang on the wall in our guest room and ended up taking them out and putting them on a shelf in the garage to collect dust.


Now that we are getting the nursery ready for our little girl I would like to do as much DIY projects as possible to make it more homey and of course cheaper!






So I had the idea of having our son Kyler paint the boxes!

He had a great time and they came out super cute!

We used washable children’s paint to keep it as clean as possible.

Of course Ky had a bath immediately after and it easily wipes off of the kitchen floor!

This was definitely fun for all of us and a great gift to his soon to be little sister.





I let them dry and now have them hanging in the nursery and am excited for more projects to come!


Washable children’s paint

I love these Crayola finger paints! It comes out of anything with just water. My little one has a great time painting and I don’t worry about it covering him from head to toe knowing that it will easily come off.



I use his high chair food tray for a lot of things because it’s so easy to clean after. I think he enjoys blending the colors on the tray more than putting it on the paper.



I love doing simple things with him that make him so happy! Next I’m going to get a few canvases so that he can paint a few pictures for the new nursery.
