Then I let my little one (who has also recently developed a love of the “side pony”) get to work. Since these paints wash off with soap and water while they’re wet, I don’t have to worry as much about the mess it makes.
I’ve gotten pretty good about calming my need to step in and
take over direct things so they come out the way that I want them to–let’s be real, we all do it–and it helps that Apple Barrel paints come in about a million colors, so I can choose colors that go with the room where the art will be hanging, and it fits right in.
Before hanging, I just turned the outer ring of the hoop around to hide the spots where she had painted on it.
I think I’ll actually be using these again for her art-themed birthday party this summer since they’re simple and so inexpensive!
