We have some friends who come over every once in a while. Every time they do, the first thing that Lizzy says is, "Can I paint?"

And I let her.

Maybe the first time I watched them, they wanted to paint with real paint, which I have, but I didn't want to deal with the mess of 6 kids trying to paint. So what I did was give them some water and some big paint brushes and let them loose on the back yard.

I think it is so cute that that is the first thing she wants to do, and it is great because the only danger is that they may get a little bit wet. :)

Here is Lizzy with her "paints".

And here is Lizzy with Sam. They are roughly the same age.
