Let's just say that this one was a HUGE hit. :)
He hasn't stopped playing with it.
Best cheap summer investment ever!

Summer dinosaur camp started yesterday for Andrew.
He is absolutely thrilled!!
When we get home after camp,
we make some fabulous art pieces,
then take a dip in the pool.
Andrew's summer is complete so far. :)
xo!

I NEED to go get that! We have the roll of paper from there with the little holder and I generally just use the paper to put UNDER craft projects to keep the table clean. I might need to take a trip to Ikea this week!

it's always the simplest things that kids are excited over! we have a similar easel, which is always outside for summer weather!

hey, try adding some shaving cream to your paints for some extra fun!

Dinosaur camp?! My kids would just flip!
So you have a little artist! I have one myself; having that easel outside is fantastic. My little artist considers himself and everything else in the proximity a canvas as well. :)
