I used the different fonts to write the verse on the canvas while Westin was napping.
When he woke up I let him use his finger paints to paint on top of the letters. In the original post they used all the colors but we just used blues and greens.
I thought he wanted to use the paint brush but once I showed him how he could use his hand, he was more into it.
I had to rotate the canvas and help him a little to get the whole thing covered. Since I wanted this to be his art, I tried to only instruct and not take over. :)
I think his favorite part of the project was playing in the water hose afterward to clean off all the paint.
After the paint dried, I picked the stickers off. I will have to touch up a few letters where the paint bled underneath but other than that, I think it turned out great! The colors blended together way better than I thought they would.
Westin was so proud of his artwork!
We hung it in his room over his toys.
No, it doesn't necessarily coordinate with his room but he is so proud of it and I love having Bible verses in his room. Especially a verse we pray for him. The fact that he painted it makes it even more special.
