In the quest for christmas gifts a number of months ago, I came upon a sale on painting kits made by Ravensburger. We LOVE the Ravensburger games that we have so I figured we would give this water color set a try. I believe it was given to Sophie for Christmas but she wasn't overly interested in it. She likes to draw and paint on her own. She doesn't like following anyone else's plan. It has sat on the shelf for a few months so I decided it was time to pull it out and give it a go. Sophie didn't seem to mind that her younger siblings did the three birds rather than her.
Here are the finished paintings.
I admit it would be nice to have my boys be able to paint a picture without the embossed lines but in reality they aren't nearly as interested in art as I am and don't have the patience to work on a project all that long. This was the longest I had ever seen them work on a painting. They had a great time and wouldn't be opposed to having another of the Ravensburger sets for another art project.
