Name Finger Painting Artwork!

We love doing art projects in our house, but haven't had a lot of time for it recently, so on Friday I set aside an hour to go outside with the kids and work on a finger painting project I had been wanting to do for some time.  It had been my plan all along (since we found out we were moving back over the summer) to make these name finger paintings and to then hang them on the wall in their playroom.  I think they turned out beautifully and can't wait to share them with you!!

The canvas I had bought back at the beginning of the summer when I was working on another art project, and they were on sale ... I think they were BOGO for a two-pack, so not too bad!  Anyway, I just used blue and green finger paints that we already had and some painters tape to tape the kids' names on the canvas.

Here is the before picture right after I taped their names ...

Jacob was really into it and did a beautiful job.  Henry, however, wasn't too keen on getting dirty.  He put the paint on both hands and then just sort of looked at it, like, "I don't think so!"  Lol.  Jacob ended up painting both of them, but ya know ... that's what big brothers are for!

This is what they look like hung up in their playroom.
