Painted Mini Birdhouses


A few weeks ago I found some wooden birdhouses at Jo Ann Fabrics for a dollar
each. I thought they would make a fun project for me to do with my boys. So,
I got brave, opened up a few of my acrylic (non-toxic) paints and let them loose!
They loved it and I loved seeing them get creative with their houses...
(and hands...and lips...)












I did the orange and green one and painted the top with chalkboard paint, writing a
Spring message on it with chalkboard markers.
 I finished my birdhouse display by stuffing a few pieces of paper Easter grass
into the holes to mimic birds nests. This turned out to be a great kid's project and I'm
 proud that my boys actually sat through the whole project to finish them!


Thanks for stopping by ReMadeSimple! I hope you come back later this week where I'll be showing you more of my spring and Easter decorating!  

Linking up with these parties.

  5. Kristina - do you ever take your boys to the Home Depot kids workshop? It's the first Sat. of each month from 9 to Noon - and it's completely free.. We have built many birdhouses there and the kids get to paint them too. :) Lately they also offer free cookies & juice too. It's a fun monthly tradition.
