Painting – Summer Play

We’ve been having lots of fun with painting recently, so I thought I’d show a photo collage of the different things we’ve done with Painting – Summer Play, a linky which is being hosted by Yummy Mummy Flabby Tummy this week – it’s my turn to host next Thursday.

Monkey has painted a pottery tractor money-box, he’s made hand prints, including good-bye cards for pre-school and painted a wooden jeep.  He loves getting messy with paints, we try to start with brushes but it’s not long before they get discarded and he just jumps in with his fingers and hands – the more mess the better.  We’ve done foot painting before but he’s not so keen on that for some reason.

I think we might collect some leaves and paint over the top of them on paper so we get a double whammy – painted leaves and the outlines on the paper. This will be out next project Painting – Summer Play.

What do you like doing with paint?

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

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. Enjoy the read.
