Stained Glass Color Mixing


Sorry for the lack of posts lately!  We were in Maui, then when we got back we adopted a new kitty, went to a whole lot of kindergarten tours, and started swimming lessons.   Whew!  But, despite the busyness, I still have to do some stuff with the kids.  I have been feeling a bit guilty that Nancy has not had the same amount of artsy-fartsy stuff introduced to her that Clara had at the same age, so for the next month or so, I’m going to focus on toddler sorts of things to do.  I have a free morning once a week with both Nancy and her newly two year old cousin, Chloe, so I have decided that that is a perfect opportunity.

This week I was trying to keep it simple because it was turing out to be an incredibly busy day after our hour and half together.  So, I put up these fantastically easy and finger painting tools that I have seen all over Pinterest (by the way, if you’re interested in a new addicition, I can hook you up with some Pinterest).  They are just ziplock bags with paint in them (two colors for color mixing) that I then used packing tape to attach to the window.  The four year old also likes these, by the way.  They can be used for as long as they are interested and then you can just take them down and toss them.  I dare you to not play with them yourself. Every adult who has walked into our house has played with them, too 😉

    Yay! Thanks for the toddler friendly idea. Leo is dying to do art projects with Oliver, but tries to put everything in his mouth. I think this may be one project he can do without me watching him like a hawk!
