Yes you guessed it. Chaos. Paint on the floor, walls and chairs. That’s not mentioning their hands, feet, tummies, hair and Phoebe even had a go at eating it.
The paint sponges were flung across the room as they got bored with them. They did however love the paint brushes and glittery pink paint.
We were making thank you cards for the presents the twins received for their second birthday. They loved it and I have done it a couple of times with them since – brave I know!
I used potato shapes and cotton wool buds to make it different for the girls. They particularly liked the cotton buds as they were easy for them to hold. Phoebe just tried to eat the potato.
Doing it at the table rather than on the floor was much easier. It meant they were not tempted to stand in the paint and run around the kitchen!
If you aren’t keen on the idea of using paint with your little one in the house just yet, why not use the water colour books that bring out different coloured inks when you put water on the pictures. Much less mess.
I would say embrace the mess but I have wooden floors so it is easier to clean up afterwards!
