mess free art :)


Tried some “mess free art” with Amu this morning. He was looking so mopey after the twins left for school that i fel we had to do something to cheer him up a bit. So, i took a ziploc bag, aquirted 4-5 diferent colored paints in, closed the bag and sealed it shut with tape for ensuring it did not leak out. Then i put it on the window pane with tape and let Amu explore. He totally liked it till he figured he could yank it off with sufficient effort and then it was moved to the floor. 

It allowed him to watch colors swirl and mix. He could trace lines on it using his fingers and other objects and he tried squooshing it with his toes too. Mess free and definitely fun. Going to put i some glitter and  googly eyes next time! ImageImage


About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
