Painting Time

I'm trying to get the girls to do more arts and crafts, stuff they would be doing if they actually went to daycare or school.

Painting is so messy but they both have fun doing it.  After a swim at the pool I brought them home and let them paint.  They can get all the washable water paints on their bathing suits because it'll rinse right off!

The girls with Bo, he always photo bombs pictures.

Little Annabel, it was her first time painting and she loved it.

Annika was hard at work.

Annabel decided to do some face painting.

Annika decided to be her usual goofball self!


  1. Hi,
    I read a blog post recently where a mom made a bunch of instant chocolate pudding and the kids took turns 'painting' each other outside (wearing swim suits, of course). After about an hour or so, she turned the hose on and the kids rinsed each other off. We tried it this weekend (my kids are 4 and 2)--and they absolutely loved it! We did it during our normal afternoon snack time, so they were able to eat the pudding and play with it at the same time. To be honest, I thought it was really messy, but they stayed in the grass, and we just rinsed out thoroughly to avoid getting ants. Just an idea to spend an afternoon!
