I did a cute sunshine art project with Emma yesterday. I needed a canvas (I used 12x16), yellow paint and one other color (I chose blue), stencils and....
You don't specifically need an Emma though. ;0)
First, I stenciled "You are my sunshine" on the canvas in blue (like the sky).
After that was dry, I painted one of Emma's hands yellow and pressed it a few inches away from the bottom corner of the canvas. You need to leave enough room so that you can do both hands and both feet.
After I did one hand, I did one foot, then did the other hand and foot. These are the sun's rays.
Before I was done, I needed to make the sun part. I just filled in the corner with yellow paint.
Don't do what I did & drop a giant blob of paint on the canvas where you don't want paint, so you have to fill it in awkwardly. I thought it was still cute though. Amy liked it & that's all that matters. :0)
I Also have another little girl here with me this week, and while I thought I had two canvases, I guess I didn't. So, I made a different one using just paper. I printed the words from the computer this time, and just used 4 hand prints to make the sun. I thought this also turned out cute.
The girls and I had fun doing both of these. I might have to do something like this with Lily. (I don't think the boys will let me do this with them though.....) ;0)
