Dallas' Date

I have been seeing some of my friends on Facebook "liking" a local art studio called SnickerDoodle Kids.  They hold paint parties for kids, as well as adults, to create their own canvases or wood shapes.  I thought it would be a nice special outing/one-on-one for Dallas and Reba for Christmas.  I had them each pick out a canvas design they liked, and scheduled them to be a part of a party.  

Dallas' party was tonight.  We started our evening by going out for supper - his choice, and he picked Wendy's.  He had picked the Gingerbread house design...
When we arrived at the studio, the instructor had already drawn the outline of the house and ground on the canvas
Dallas first filled in the background
Then, he painted the house
 He added the lollypops and clouds, and then filled in the door
The instructor "finished" the painting by adding the black detail lines, and Dallas gave it one last dry.
His finished painting!
The best part was as we were leaving, Dallas said, "Thanks Mom! I liked doing that with you."

Until next time...
