Paint

 
 I took the boys to a "paint your own pottery" place recently.  Have
you ever done that?  It's so much fun, and had been way too long
since I last did it...when Sam was 3-years old.
 
 
We chose some fun pieces and got to work...
 


Sam was so into it.  I don't think he said a word the entire time...


I think we both gasped out loud, tho, when Luke did this...



In the end, tho, Luke was right.  Ariel does look pretty in his room...

I am so glad you let him do his own thing - what a great piece - he will always remember that!

I love places like this! I took Noam to one in Oregon once and made hand print tiles! Love the masterpiece, stunning blues he used!

So cute - very colorful Ariel. ;)

When my girls were wee I used to take them to these pottery places. They loved it so much and we have lots of these pieces around the house.
I'm sure your boys will keep them forever too :)

These places are fun. My kids have gone from time to time some have quite the collection of pottery. I like the pumpkin and the Ariel. :)

oh I have yet to ever take my kiddos to do this - they keep seeing this store in the mall and I always steer clear - maybe next time I will stop in!

Such a fabulous memory-builder to do with kids. They'll always remember creating their treasures.

Sheila said...

Great pictures - we love 'paint your own pottery' and done some during our summer vacation :)

Lish said...

Cool!! I would never think to do that with my guys...maybe when they are a bit older...looks like a great experience!

Oh how fun. We used to have a place like this when we lived in another town. I should have taken advantage of it more when I had it so close.

Patrice said...

I haven't done that in 40 years, at least! Ariel is a gem!!!

so fun!
I haven't been to one of those places since the mid-90's.

That totally made me smile, what Luke did! :)

We love the paint your own pottery places, especially at Christmas time. Painting ornaments and gifts are always part of our Advnet calender.

I love your pictures. It's obvious your boys are very serious about their work by their looks of concentration.

This is such a good idea. And oh my, the cuteness of it all!

Danielle said...

What fun. A great form of self expression.

Lori said...

Oh yes, we did this as a kid all the time, and so fun! The pottery craze was going on, and it was my sister's hobby. So she would take us girls with her often, I miss that! Fun!

Love how they are so in to it! Can't blame them!

Thanks for sharing with Foto Friday,
Lori

That is awesome! Your boys did such a good job! I love how Ariel turned out. :)

Tezzie said...

That boy of yours has an artistic eye, for sure! Ariel has never looked more beautiful<3 What a fun thing to do with your kiddos...I'll have to look into finding out if there's something similar around here (although, I'm seriously doubting it... ;D)
