Last night we bought a few more bingo markers (used for our pointillism art lesson previously) and posterboard.

After cutting each piece of posterboard in half, everyone used a pencil to draw a picture and proceeded to “color” it in with bingo markers.

Our color options were limited to red blue, black, purple, and orange.

My son is a map-loving kid. He decided to draw a map of Europe.

Our youngest made a sunset with three birds flying in the sky.

We had a good family time working on our paintings…and showing daddy about pointillism and Georges Seurat.  It was fun to show him a painting and then using the zoom feature get close to the paintings to see the individual color points closely and separate.

This was fun and cheap too!  All of the paper and paint was less than $10 at Dollar Tree.

A tree – the trunk is made by tracing a hand and arm.  (I saw this somewhere on pinterest last week.)

I just wanted to share our fun evening with you.  Maybe you can give this idea a try some time.
