Toddler activity – Day 6: Spray painting

9 Nov

It’s been raining here for what feels like months, so when we woke up this morning and the sun was shining I knew it was going to be a fun day!

I have to admit that I’m a little nervous of hauling out the paints – it always seems to end up with more paint on both my monkey and I, than on the paper, and of course today was no exception!

Anyway, I saw this idea on Pinterest a while ago and have been wanting to give it a try – today was the day. Easy peasy to do, I just used some paint we normally use (Dala wet paint), chucked some in the spray bottle that I got from our local plastic shop, added water and let the fun begin. It took a few minutes for my monkey to get the spraying part right, but she soon had it and just loved spraying the paint on the paper (and later on the flowers, drive way, cat and wall!!!!!, and the morning ended with her chasing me around the garden.)

I know it’s probably not the most responsible parenting, and ¬†at the time kind of felt I should be telling her off and not letting her chase me trying to cover me in paint, but we were both laughing so much that I let her get away with it! I’m hoping they don’t try this activity at school next year and I have to explain to the teacher why she’s spraying the kids and not the paper :) Just for the record I did draw the line when she decided to add some colour to the wall and to our cat!

 

Public announcement from our cat to yours: Stay clear when toddler is armed with spray paint

 

Running after mom, armed and dangerous!

 

 

Have a fun filled weekend with hopefully heaps of special moments with your kiddies x
