I know it doesn’t feel like it with the Arctic Blast everyone in the Midwest is experiencing, but spring IS coming!  I promise!  Soon enough all the snow will melt away, flowers will begin to bloom, and cherry blossom trees will begin to flower.  While freezing temperatures are currently the norm, just remember that someday soon you’ll be out in a t-shirt soaking up the sunshine!

Since Tuesday is Chinese New Year, and cherry blossoms hold special meaning for the holiday, Caleb and I decided we should make some artwork together.  I decided we needed to do a cherry blossom art lesson and, since kiddo is always up for artwork, he happily complied!

1. Using the black paint and paintbrush, draw the trunk and branches of your cherry blossom tree.

Caleb thought stamping with a water bottle was pretty hilarious and loved how his tree turned out!  If you do it, be sure to share a picture of the final product on Instagram and tag me (@SusannahKellogg) in the photo!
