6 kids + 6 bottles of acrylic paint + bedroom carpet

Equals this.


Let me stress that these pictures do not. do. justice to the extent of this mess.
Our bedroom is about 300 sq ft and there was not a single area of it that did not have orange footprints and splashes of paint on the floor.
Tempe, Helena, and their two friends and two cousins helped themselves to the paint and paintbrushes this morning while the moms were downstairs talking.
Thank you to Rachel and Michelle for helping me clean as much up as we could!
Thank you to Howard the carpet guy who is currently hard at work cleaning the rest!!

What a nightmare! At least you have a story to blackmail them with when they are older.

Oh dear! That makes me cringe. Hope Howard the carpet guy was able to work some magic on that!

Oh I would be hanging those kids up by their toenails! but seriously, my kids have done that and I was able to get some of it out but I really should have had a carpet guy come over. My friends DS dumped green food color on the light tan carpet at her house. That was not nice.
