You know how we are doing that crazy renovating thing right? Well there is a lot of scraps and off cuts of wood lying around the Pickle Farm at the moment. We had lots of fun creating sculptures and building things with the wood scraps and glue guns, and we’ve had fun with the wood scraps with play dough and as loose parts to build with, but we still have haps of bits of wood lying around.
What to do with all those lovely boards??
Paint on them of course!
We got out our water colour paints, collected some nice flat boards and painted and painted and painted!
Sometimes it is the simple things that are the most engaging and give the best results.
The painted boards looked so pretty that we’ve kept some to use with our wooden blocks.
So if you happen to be building something, or wandering past a building site, take a look around and see if they have any wood scraps that you could paint on!
In other news…. I am moving web hosts over the next few days, so if things go a bit wonky around here don’t panic, all will be ok soon (I hope.) In the meantime you can always find updates and crazy kid questions over on my facebook page.
