Beautiful Oops Painting


Jen started her blog, Mama. Papa. Budda as a way for her family and friends to keep up with her growing family as they traveled the world. While living in Kuwait, Jen fell in love with Beautiful Oops! and couldn’t wait to get started on her project for the Preschool Book Club.

All you need to create your very own Beautiful Oops Painting is a canvas panel (or paper), acrylic paint, droppers, and paint brushes. The only rule is that you can’t touch the actual canvas while painting—each mark has to be an OOPS! of some sort, whether a spill, a drip, or a drop. In the end, envision your spills, drops, and drops as something beautiful. Jen and her daughter saw their Oops painting as flowers. For more information on this project, visit Mama.Papa.Budda here!
