Painting Extravaganza

November 21-23, 2014

If your child likes to paint, she’ll love a weekend full of colorful projects using all the colors of the rainbow. Take a trip to the paint store and let her pick out her favorite colors to create her work of art. When you get home, set up an easel with all the painting supplies she needs and let her inner Picasso loose. As she gets busy making her masterpiece, you can get busy creating a delicious meal to enjoy afterwards. Finish off the weekend with her favorite board games and a cozy flick you’ll all enjoy.
