Painting a Bird Feeder

Sam and I are off school for this rainy week, so we headed to Michael’s today to pick up some fun crafts to do from home.  We rushed home and started on our first project–a bird feeder.  Sam doesn’t look like he was having a lot of fun in these pictures, but it’s only because he was very focused.

Here’s the finished product:


At some point during our project, Sam decided that he wanted some orange paint.  We only bought pink, green, and yellow paint, so we made our own orange. You can see Sam mix some paint in this video:

We were very pleased this evening when Sam took his bath.  He has some tablets that change the color of his bath water.  He wanted orange, so he took a red and a yellow tablet to make orange.  The lesson stuck!
