Finger painting Fun
Im really impressed with Lily today and so I feel its something to write a little post about.
Lily has never been a big fan of painting, she doesn't like the mess and so much to my disappointment I have got it out a few times to do it and she just doesn't want to. Im not going to force her to do it and so I just kept trying on new occasions to encourage her.
Today I decided to try a new painting activity with her as well as do some paintings for Daddy for Fathers Day. The activity we did I will be blogging about later. But I was really impressed because she sat down and happily had a really good go about it. She made 5 paintings and I normally get about half a paper from her. So this is a real improvement and Im so excited to be able to try and do new painting activities on a more regular basis now.
But then for her last painting she did something that really shocked me. Stuck her finger in the paint. Lily hates her hands getting messy so for her to do that it was a big step towards more messy fun! She dabbed her finger on the paper and realised it made a mark and then did more.. and more. Lily was finger painting and I could not believe it!
She didn't complain once about the paint on her fingers.
So here is Lily's first ever Finger Painting at 18 months old.
