Every now and then my four year old has better ideas than me.
I sit there and look at him for a minute and am just like 'wow, that's a great idea!'
He's the best :)
So when he saw me cutting out shapes for my big project (that I'll be showing you soon) with my new jigsaw,
he watched and watched.
*You could totally see the gears turning*
And then asked me if I could cut out hearts.
Now, it was my first time ever using my jigsaw.
And I was saw happy.
Plus I couldn't say no to that chubby face when he asks me to make something for him.
So I said sure.
Then he said I needed to make three hearts.
One for mommy, one for daddy and one for him.
And our family hearts were born.
And he even begged for us to take pictures with them.
What the what?
I love that my four year old was in charge of the design concept and the photo shoot.
Totally my kid.
I'd been out with the saw all day.
And hubby's afro was out of control :)
Then we each got to paint our hearts.
I just nicely asked hubby to please not paint it a bright orange.
He was totally just trying to rebel against our 'normal' house colors.
So he went with green instead.
Aren't they cute?
If you've been here long you totally know which one mine is.
The blue one with pretty white stenciling?Why yes...it is.
Hubby did his green then allowed little man to pick the stencil.
It ended up being our wedding colors which was unintentionally sweet.
Little man went paint happy and I love all the swirls in his.
He helped put his little stencil on too :)
I dug out our chalkboard and made a quick "I love you because..." board.
That way we can leave love notes when we're feeling nice :)
And our family hearts can guard it.
I love that we each have a heart that was handpainted by us.
And I can't even claim the idea.
Because my four year old just outdid me.
And I'm totally ok with that.
Do your kiddos like to craft with you?
Any special projects you've made with them lately??
