Bear, meet Paint. (pt 2)

April 16, 2013 § 1 Comment

We’ve come a long way since this. A huuugely long way!! Last time the Bear did big painting at home he discovered the joy of painting. Since then we have been along to The Creation Station to join in with some Big Art and he enjoyed it so much that I was inspired to let him loose with the paints again at home.

Big Messy Painting

Prepare for a lot of photographs πŸ™‚

Bean was busy watching a DVD but Bear had spied the paints already and was itching to play with them. While I was occupied getting paper he couldn’t wait any longer and introduced a banana to the paint tubes – lovely!! Our first “job” was to add some potato stamp starfish to the ocean art we created at the Creation Station, although really we could have done with the Bean around at this point to help show Bear what to do.

That said, once the ocean was put out of reach to dry, and a fresh sheet of paper was taped down and the Bean decided that he couldn’t NOT do any painting (it’s like a magnet, he loves paint!) and they were both stripped to the waist, Bear decided that the absolute best thing to paint was….. yes, Bean.

Ooodles of fun.

Oh did I mention that I forgot to run them a bath before we started painting? You’d think I would know better by now, really. In our house, there is a very very long way between the kitchen where we were painting, and the bathroom. Lots and lots and lots of stuff, and two very painted children, is not a mix I was keen to investigate so we made do with a couple of laundry buckets to clean them up in afterwards! Which inevitably led to a great excuse to mop the kitchen floor….

Enjoy πŸ™‚
