Scrapbook Pages-226

Each year we all head down to downtown Grand Rapids, MI for the big Festival Of The Arts. It is the biggest volunteer art festival in the country they have many free art activities for kids, music, food from around the world, performances, and more.

Painting pictures is something the kids love doing each year. The kids were very disappointed that the wood building area was out of wood for the day so we were not able to make wood creations this year like we normally do.
