Molly is just about getting into her proper “activities” now as opposed to being a more passive participant. I dont fancy giving her actual painting tools – she would eat the paint and probably poke herself in the eye with the brush but this activity gives her the feel of creating a painting without the mess and injury!
Its just a freezer bag with a few blobs of coloured paint in which I then sellotaped to her high chair tray. She then used her hands to spread the paint around.
The whole activity lasted only about 5 minutes but as a first introduction to paint I think its well worth a go!
We have been reading about the Stone Age and cave painting so here is our very own set of cave painting handprints!
In an effort to get him interested in something (anything) else this morning we painted a plate I found in home and bargain. I was expecting this to be met with moaning but actually he enjoyed it and only mentioned minecraft about 309 times which is an improvement on normal!!
Not quite so minecraft obsessed 11 year old has started on a mini cross stitch set. Which is a nice new skill for her to learn.
