The little voice at the back of my head saying "BMWB" has led to me enjoying many hours of building lego houses and sandcastles. It has encouraged me to get creative and be intentional in my parenting I thought I'd share with you one of these activities.
Today I had planned to take Rascal and Scallywag to the library for Toddlertime, but poor wee Scallywag just wasn't up for it. He has 4 teeth on the verge of pushing through (2 canines and 2 molars) and this was making him uncharacteristically upset.
I put him to bed and decided it was time to have some quality time with Rascal- some painting was required!
First we used squashed toilet rolls as heart shaped stamps (inspiration from here)
|The tools of our trade!|
|Various different kinds of stamps were used here|
Finally we painted the last of the salt dough ornaments that we made way back here. I have a vague plan to turn these into magnets (inspiration here)
Such a fun morning and a great way to encourage creativity. I love how painting with Rascal never quite turns out the way I envision it, but we have lots more fun if we do it her way!
What fun activities have you been up to with your children recently?
