Fun With Paint

on 12/02/2013

FPF paint

This morning after Joshua decided sleeping past 6.30 am was not going to happen (serves me right gloating yesterday about him sleeping through 11-12 hrs at a time)

So in the absence of any further sleep we decided to do some painting, which in all fairness has been one of the first times we have done any painting.

Joshua picked his 2 colours: blue & green and then set about making a jolly fine mess picture followed by several more!

Today has been lots of fun already and its not even 9 am!

I wonder what other fun stuff we might do today ……

  1. I love to see little ones getting messy! Such a rewarding experience!

  2. Have you tried “cornsilk” ? Cheap, easy, and great fun! Cornflour, mixed into a paste with water, so it’s the consistency of paint, in a tray, (add food colouring if you like) and then let him play with it, it has this weird solid to liquid texture, Matthew likes to make shapes, and run a toy car through it. Mess wise, I would say the same as paint, but it is great fun. We used to do it at work for children with sight/sensory impairments, endless hours of fun!

    Looks like he was enjoying himself! It’s amazing what we mums get up to at the early hours of the morning! Hope the rest of the day was just as fun!

    Arts and crafts are always fun at that age! Especially finger paints πŸ™‚
