Now at four Raymond can do the hand print part all by himself.  I let go of the need for perfection a long time ago and just want my kids to enjoy the art they create. BOY was he truly excited to do it all by himself AND goodness did he have fun.

Emma chose PURPLE for her LOVE Tree color(no surprise, it is her FAVORITE) and truly just loved smearing all sorts of paint colors on her tree.  She said the leaves were flying in the wind and falling off of her tree.  Love her imagination.
