When the kids were littler, I used to set up an indoor easel and paper for them to use for finger painting projects.
As they got bigger, I moved the easel outdoors. For some reason, this put a damper on the finger paints, although they continued to use the chalk board side.
This weekend, I went out back to take some end-of-summer pictures and discovered that someone *cough James' sister cough* had discovered a new use for the outdoor paints:
Thank goodness they're acrylics!
