Painting, Summer Play

Painting – Summer Play

We’ve been having lots of fun 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.

Painting, Summer PlayMy son has painted a pottery tractor money-box, he’s made handprints, 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 our next project Painting – Summer Play.

What do you like doing with paint?

The Summer Play Linky is a new idea for the next couple of months – the schedule for hosts is shown below – we’d love it if you link up.  Each week’s linky will run Thursday-Wednesday.  Some hosts might mention a specific theme, others will just run with any play post you’d like to link up.

  1. Looks like he’s been having lots of fun, I love getting paints out for both of mine. My son is really starting to enjoy creating ‘art’ and my daughter just loves getting messy with it!

  2. Looks like Monkey had lots of fun. My C loves to paint but she doesn’t like to do it for long. Thanks for linking up 🙂
