"APFLH Children's Art Studio- March Madness"

It is officially Spring...

the weather is warming
the birds are singing
the children's play and laughter is reminding me of younger days

It is my absolute favorite season!

So to commemorate, my kids and I decided to

unlock the back room
dust off the furniture
pull out the art materials

to open "A Place For Little Hands Children's Art Studio"

Our featured activity was based upon the children's book...
