We found a lot of inspiration but ultimately agreed that we liked a canvas we found on Lines, Dots and Curls By Katie. He told me blue wouldn't work because his teacher's favorite color is pink. Lucky for him, I already had pink and black acrylic paint (Apple Barrel Gloss in Pure Pink 20346 and Black 20504 from Wal-mart) and an 8" x 10" canvas I purchased a while ago for 50% off at Hobby Lobby.
It was a great project for the both of us. I hope his teacher loves it as much as we love her.
Second grade here we come!
