Our friend gave us a decorate-it-yourself-birdhouse for Henry's birthday. David said that they needed to make it beautiful so that a bird would find it and love to live in it. Here's how we accomplished that:
Step 1. Cover the table & remove the children's clothes.
Step 2. Hand your children a pre-made birdhouse, paint and paintbrushes.
Step 3. Sit down to nurse the baby while admonishing children from across the room to please not spill/throw/splatter the paint.
Step 4. Wait 4.26 minutes.
Step 5. Rub children down with wet rag while admiring finished masterpiece.
Oh wait, you're probably going to want to pin this......
