However, MICHAEL'S arts and crafts store is awesome on Black Friday. Most people go to other stores like Best Buy or Walmart, but really, if you are an art person there is no better day to go shopping at Michael's. They usually have a 30% or 25% off your entire order, including sale items.. and tons of things are on sale too. For the past couple of years, I have picked up a bunch of canvases for really cheap which will last me the whole year (and some I bring to school for large group student artwork.) Plus, since everyone else is buying electronics, the lines really aren't long at all.
Back to the story of these bunnies.....
I wanted to use up one of these large canvases that had been sitting in storage, so I decided I would make a painting of a cute rabbit for my 3 year old's bedroom. Daria said she thought a painting of a rabbit would be nice.
So, I told Daria that this was the mommy rabbit and she was going to give birth to three baby bunnies.
She watched me as I covered up the rabbit with white and light turquoise paint. We sang, "Bye Bye Bunny Bye Bye." She said, "Where did the rabbit go?" And I explained that it was under the paint.

These were the three bunnies that were born. After the painting was finished, Daria asked several times where the Momma rabbit went. I had to explain to her again that it was under the paint and was secretly hiding behind the babies.
