Lily's First Time Painting
I have been meaning to do art and painting with Lily for sometime now. So now she is over 1 it is definitely time to start. I decided to do it over two days. Each session didn't last long but we got some nice results.
We used coloured paper, red and green coloured paint, and sponges, and placed a plastic splash matt on the floor.
We also had Lily dressed in old clothing and I had wet wipes at the ready in case any got on the floor.
I had to show lily what to do at first, and her first time of holding a sponge she wasn't to keen of the feeling of the paint on her hands. Eventually she got the idea of getting the paint from the bowl it was squeezed into and placing the sponge onto the paper to make a mark.
Here are the results.
We used coloured paper, blue and yellow paint, and paintbrushes with thick handles.
Today we only managed to get one picture done before Lily soon lost interest but its a start. I had to dip the paintbrush in the paint, but lily would take the paintbrush from me and swish it on the paper.
Here is today's results.
