Cardboard Tube Painting

First I have to give a shout out to my Dad. He randomly brings us Styrofoam cups, tons of them and we have no idea why, BUT today I had a use for them (and my more now that I am staying home)! They made the perfect little paint trays for the cardboard tubes. We will use the tops for some animal hunting or looking for clues to a buried treasure (spyglass style ;) )
I also wanted to give a shout out to my lovely Abigail who dresses herself. I noticed right away that her shirt was on backwards but didn't notice her pants were backwards until we got ready to paint ;) She is always proud of herself when she gets to do things all by herself so I didn't have the heart to switch them ;)

She chose pink (of course) orange and blue and away she went!

"Look momma, two at a time"

Finished product :) She told me that it's my birthday present, yippee!
