Let's Make Art....Edible Art

Pinterst Oh Pinterest....you are too cool for words.  Really you are.  Here's another pinterest idea.....

I've been wanting to do this for some time but wasn't quite sure if Boston was ready for it.  So we waited....until just recently, like last week.  I decided to just do it.  

I searched Pinterest for edible paint and got a ton of recipes.  The one I chose seemed to be on the more "tasty" side in case B decided he wanted to eat the "paint."  

Ingredients: 
I wanted to do something a little different.  Plus, I knew I wanted to keep his first piece of art for ever.  So I chose to use a 12x12 canvas so that we could hang his master-piece when he was done.  (keeping my fingers crossed it would turn out decent looking)  :) 
So I came up with this. *the scripture is totally off centered, but what the hay!*   
Using painters tape to make a cross and using alphabet stickers from wal-mart will allow it to not be painted on so that when we peel it off, you'll be able to see them throughout all of the colors.  We chose this scripture for him because it's so so true.  We also put this scripture on his memory box.  
The supplies, paint, Jet and Boston are all ready!
I think I was more excited than B.
He did so good!
The obligatory picture with mom.  Ha.  I think I was messing up his concentration.  "This is serious business, there's no time for pictures right now, mom!"
So while, I was helping B and Jer was taking pictures (luckily he got to join in on the fun since he was working from home that day).....Jet was over there having himself a snack.  Ha.
We caught you, dude.  Your blue lips can't deny it.
The paint was a little on the "watery" side, but it still did the trick.  (next time I'll probably add a little flower to the mixture)

Because it was so watery, it got us, B and everything else around wet with color since B kept slinging his paint brush around half the time (we have a video posted on vimeo).  :)
And now for the masterpiece.....  
We love it and can't wait to put it in his room.

I let it dry outside for a whole day before tearing off the tape.

His first painting was a success!

Much to our surprise, Boston wasn't into eating the paint as much as Jet was.  Silly boy.

Happy Friday!!!
