We waited until he was good and dirty from a filling dinner of green beans, beef ravioli and mandarin oranges (whoever told me their kiddo loved mandarin oranges prompting me to buy some today...thank you!....he loved them) and then stripped down and got to work.
I had found some ideas on Pinterest (doesn't everybody??) for footprint reindeer, handprint Christmas trees and fingerprint ornaments...and while I'm the first to admit that I don't have much of an artsy bone in my body, I have to say that I'm pleased with the way they turned out. I mean they definitely aren't perfect, but they were made with laughter and my cute little guy's hands and feet...can that be any cuter?

|We didn't get an "after" pic, but there was more than just a little bit of brown paint on his face!|
Apparently paint "tastes" good
