We painted pet rocks, today.
We just used Crayola kids paints (washable, thank goodness), and then put on "googly eyes." Mitchell said the yellow one doesn't get eyes because, "It is the sun." The plain red one is the sun at sunset.
The pink one started out as a caterpillar, but now is called a centipede. Mitchell has been carrying him around all afternoon and named him, "Incher." I painted the legs and spots, and Mitchell painted the "hair" and mouth. He has twelve legs.
Daddy painted the frog with the brown spots. I made the ladybug, and Mitchell added a mouth. I'm not sure whether the "lip" appearance is on purpose or not, but it is pretty good for a 3-year-old!
