So it’s school holidays for us at the moment… well kinder holidays. We’re still running at a mile a minute, with birthday parties and this crazy family wedding, but this week I was determined to do something fun with the kids, something they’d wanted to do for ages.
We got out the paints.
I was just going to let them paint with boring old paint brushes but then we began chatting about patterns and printing so I gathered a few interesting house hold items and we got busy…
The potato masher was a lot of fun to print with, as was a toilet roll. We also tried various play dough cutters, one of those little rolling play dough cutting wheels, a dish brush, and some bubble wrap. We could have used fruit or vegetables but I generally don’t like to use food for art or play (though we do love play dough – I am hypocritical like that sometimes)
Muski was able to join in too, though I corralled him in the high chair so painted fingers didn’t escape all over my house. Even I had a go at the bubble wrap printing!
Heaps of fun…. Now they want to know what we are doing tomorrow!
