Mini Michelangelo

This was a great project for Love Bug because we got to talk about a famous artist and a famous painting. I told him how Michelangelo had painted the Sistine Chapel ceiling while lying on his back and showed him pictures of it.

Then we did our own project where he was painting while lying on his back.

We taped up a paper beneath a kitchen chair that was low enough for him to reach while lying flat on his back. He also used his  new paint palette, so he felt like a real artist.


The finished product (he said he was painting our ceiling):


I originally found this idea here.


About Kelly

I'm a stay-at-home mom to two boys and a girl. My Love Bug is 4 and has been doing art projects since just after turning 2. My Sweet Pea is 2 and tries to do everything his brother does. Little Flower is 4 months and has no idea of all the fun she has ahead of her.
