Half term art

by mammylu

It’s half term, that means 2 kids off together. It’s also the day before payday, which means 2 kids off together staying in the house (the weather is a bit soggy).

So… I decided to let the littles fingerpaint.

I followed advice from the small potatoes blog valentine’s activity. We’re running low on paint (we only had ‘blue squirty paint”) but it still worked with a little soap mixed in. And we substituted cardboard for backing paper (the stuff you put under wallpaper).

I have to admit that this is the fastest clean up we’ve ever had after painting. And actually the first time I’ve been brave enough to let them both paint at the same time. And there were no tears at tidy up time!
