A bit of paint fun

Last week Monkey finished at his current pre-school and we needed to think of something to give to a couple of the key workers. I’m not a great fan of this new fad of presents for everyone, so decided on making something more personal with my little man.

We decided to make some cards and I came up with the idea of a hand print – simple but effective.

Once we’d got the serious stuff out-of-the-way I just let Monkey loose on the paints – he had a great time.

It was mayhem, but he enjoyed getting covered in paint, squelching it between his fingers and then smearing it over the paper.  He is definately more of an abstract artist!

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school.We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds.We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply.
