The last box from Grandma and Grandpa included a little water color painting set. The Little Guy latched onto it right away!
I haven't had the supplies to really do a painting activity before this. It was on my to-do list but memories of the mess that painting created at the preschool kept me from rushing out to get paint!
This wasn't bad though. It is a much more manageable project with 1 kid than with 20!!!He chose a page from the book and was itching to get started as soon as he understood how to get the dry paints wet.
When we were done we cleaned up together and the Little Guy declaired that the paiting is to be a gift for Daddy. He very proudly handed it over first thing the next morning!
