August in Arizona is SO HOT!!! We have to stay inside a lot because of the intense heat, 112 is the norm. However, September has brought us cooler weather, 103 the norm. Yeah, we can go outside now. 
I love Pinterest! I get so many awesome kid fun activities from it.
Like this is one...
Painting 101 - Tape word on canvas board and paint over it.
 (June couldn't wait to paint. Ryan had no idea how much fun he was about to experience.)
So excited!

My little painters.

There are many techniques to painting with toddlers... Here are a couple.
1 - The full hand dousing, followed by smacking and smearing.

2 - Printing... Using hands, or fingers, feet, or your shorts  :)  
3 - And of course the sweet finger painting. ( I thought we were going to be outside for a while. June was actually painting a "dragon" if you didn't notice.)

An Artist pleased with his creation.

This bike was pink...

 Finishing up painting, beginning playing. I love how much my kids love each other.

 All done. That my friends is how we paint. 
I can't wait for our next project.
