A few weeks back on a rainy day, we had decided to bring our huge empty furniture boxes from IKEA to our friends GG and BB's place to jointly create a cubby house for our kids. Sora and BB both loved hiding and playing in and out of that finished cubby house right from the start.
Since then, GG and BB have been taken take of the house so well, and have done some lovely drawing on it. Today on our visit to their house, we decided that we are going to paint the house together!
It all started nicely, with Sora and BB both testing their red, yellow, blue and white paints GG prepared in egg cartons on the windows and walls of the cubby house. They were both clothed then, using paint brushes like nice, civilized little artists. But when adventerous mamas showed them how to fingerpaint, and handpaint, the toddlers started painting their bodies, of course! Their singlets came off, and their bodies became canvases. BB's tummy turned purple, and Sora's arms red, and her tummy pink! Under GG's direction, both girls even managed to leave their tummy prints on the cubby house!
They did very well keeping the paints contained in the area covered with the sheet, too. Toward the end of the activity, Sora painted BB's tummy and feet, and vice versa...! We had fun washing the paints off in the bath, too! Go, little wild artists!
