As you can see, we used a stencil for the lily pad. She ended up getting unwanted green on the blue, but I showed her how to paint over it – the beauty of acrylics is it covers up previous paint really well. If I were to do this again, I would skip the stencil and let her free draw it. I was really proud of how well she respected the paint and was extra careful not to get it on herself. I totally forgot to remind her to get a smock.
