|A good crawl through the paint is always fun!|
|Yes, we painted with our feet and hands.|
|Didn't I just say that the mess is less outdoors? I was wrong. A good portion of the driveway had paint all over it but luckily it all came off very easily with water.|
Now for paint day #2 I made some watercolors from my pinterest board. E did not join us but the others had a great time and the mess was way less.
|Do you think we have enough water there to rinse our brushes?|
And painting day #3 was little Miss. K all by herself. She spent a good hour and a half out on the patio fully engaged in her art. She pulled out all the paints, paper and brushes on her own and explored to her heart's content. Sometimes having a mom that can just let go and let them have at it is what they need. I say this because letting go is not easy for me; they might make a mess, use up all the paint or worse, make a mess for me to clean up. Seeing my little girl happily working outside was such a blessing. And yes, much of our paint is gone but it is a scene that I will relish for many days ahead.
Isn't summer happy?
