I taped off the initials with painters tape so they would be easy to remove. I had to do many little strips to fill the letters in since we used big canvasses.
And outside we go. Paint ( kids washable because my kids love to paint everything they can, including themselves), paintbrushes, water ( mostly to play in not wash off brushes) Good times.
My 2 year old was having more fun painting herself than her picture. Can't really blame her
My 4 year old started splattering the paint and thought that was good fun
The 2 year old hasn't finished hers yet. We sort of ran out of paint ( not naming any names here) but someone wasted it all on her legs, arms, belly, sister...
Finished! I took the painters tape off and filled in the K with basic white acrylic paint. This is now hanging in her room. Really a neat, relatively inexpensive way to spend an afternoon and my kids had a blast.
