Painting with Chives

Maya was sitting on the front porch and observed that our chives looked like little purple paint brushes. 

So we picked a few of those "paint brushes" to see if they would work. 

And they did.
I must warn you that it took quite a few chives to paint an entire page because they weren't real sturdy, and it took me a while to figure out it was my kids stinky hands that smelt bad, and not me. I was beginning to think my "imaginary deodorant" wasn't working any more.

That is really neat - and really funny about the stink.

This is adorable.


Try letting the blossoms dry out.
