Rainy Days



So glad we got out to the parks last Wednesday and Thursday. Ever since then we have had super foggy weather and rain. Nasty cold and wet winter weather. So we have been stuck inside for the most part except for our trip to story time at the library today. 

We decided yesterday to invite our friends over for a painting play date. It was tons of fun to see each kid paint and to see the difference in each child. Virginia tends to stick with one or two colors and switches paper often. Maddy tried a few colors and really stuck with just one sheet of paper. Mia got in on the action too, but all the girls quickly decided to go play in Virginia's room by the end of the afternoon.

I laid out a few items for the kids to explore painting with. We had our paint brushes and then I added a comb, cardboard comb, bubble warp sheets, and a net material. They used the comb to brush and create lines in the paint. I loved seeing the texture pattern that the net material and bubble warp created. I believe all the kids had a blast. The funny part was I believe that Danielle and I had more paint on us then the kids and we were not painting.
