Nursery Artwork

This piece of nursery artwork was created by my 3 year old for his soon to be born sister’s room.

nursery artwork

  1. Pick out a canvas size and paint colors that go with your nursery’s color scheme.
  2. Paint the entire canvas using the darkest color. Let dry.
  3. Paint lines and dots with the next lightest color. Let dry.
  4. Continue painting lines and dots with each of the lighter colors.

I had to remind B to not fill the whole space with any of the colors. I think it turned out great and is such a special addition to sister’s nursery.
