Sometimes, with a little one around, the days can be long. They need just a little something new, novel and unexpected to grab their interest and engage their bodies (and minds) in something productive and fun!
We were having just that sort of day. The toys were old news. Our books were boring. Ewan needing a little something. And, boy, did he get it.
We painted with our feet!
I started by taping a few sheets of giant paper to the sidewalk outside. Then, I squirted some tempera paint onto the paper (a bit too much in hindsight). I took off the babe’s shoes and clothes to simplify clean-up and let him at it.
Turns out, he was something of a natural.
Making quite the masterpiece on the paper.
Even after a thorough washing and two showers, he still has paint stuck in his toenail beds. It’s a good reminder.
