Due to the great British weather....

...we have been going a little stir crazy over the last few days. We have dashed outside at every break in the rain, been puddle jumping and been drenched too many times!

So we decided to have an arty afternoon. They loved it! I thought they would get fed up after a few minutes but we painted for over an hour, not bad at 18 months and 3 years!

total concentration


The Red Hand Gang

When we had finished it was a messy dash to get them both in the bath. The Little Miss couldn't understand at all why she was having a bath before dinner or why she had clothes on, not jammies. I love the way everything has to be just so for three year olds!

This is usually my workspace so I think we will be sharing for a few days yet. The weather reports are not looking good...if you have any ideas for entertaining the bambinos please let me know.

i don't think my kitchen table EVER gets cleared up! one day I will sand all the paint off the surface! two of my three boys love to paint - my pet hate is play dough as i've got wicker seats on the chairs -

Thanks for your comment! I haven't let the little one near play dough yet I'm just not brave enough...
