I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Peanut Butter Oil Painting with your Dog

Your dog might be a "Pawcasso" too!

This was a fun and yummy activity to do with Karma on her 8th birthday! (We both had the fun but she had the yummy 😃)

Take a blank canvas. You can get one from the dollar store or what I did was gesso over an old painting. I gave the background a wash of Payne's grey then dabbed on some colours in oil paint. All the Pinterest posts I've seen of dogs painting using this method have used acrylic paint but we only had oil so we went with that.

I slid the canvas into a large ziplock baggie and tried to remove as much air as possible. Then spread natural peanut butter all over the bag. Make sure your PB does not contain xylitol as it is toxic for dogs.

And here is Karma Pawcasso ready to "paint"! 

We did it out on the grass to keep the painting in one place. I imagine it would have slid all over the floor if we'd done it inside.

She started on the outside edge of the canvas...

Then worked her way around her masterpiece until all the PB was gone.

And here is her masterpiece!
