Pinterest Challenge Week 8: Jelly Bean Painting

This week I decided to try a pin the boys could do with me. Reed, in particular, is quite fond of perusing my Pinterest boards and choosing a craft to do. Anyway, this week for "school," we were learning about letter J. And what better time could possibly exist for giving jellybean painting a try?

The jellybean painting worked...ish. The colors turned out to be somewhat akin to really light water colors. Reed did enjoy the painting, but Asher was mostly interested in eating the jellybeans. One huge pro was that the project created very minimal mess. And it kept the boys occupied while I put Lila down for a nap. Everybody wins.
