My First...

PAINTING!!!

I got some tempera paint at Bradburns last week and I have been dying to get Madeline all messy. My first thought was to do it outside, but then I thought it through... she is only 15 months old. Her attention span is very short for these sorts of activities. I would have spent 30 minutes setting up the painting and then cleaning it up afterward, only to have had her paint for what, 5 minutes tops?!? So we settled for the high chair.

Isn't it a master piece?

She looks like she's really enjoying it. And the painting is on my fridge. :)

Thank you Maddy-lou-who.

I knew you would appreciate this activity Christy! I hope to give her many more opportunities, now that she has learned the paint brush does NOT go into her mouth.

how fun! I LOVE that you're letting her get messy and have fun. (Not that I thought you wouldn't.) I never get when people want their kids to be pristine all the time and not have any fun. Yea for paint! :)
