Painting Activity Gone Wrong!
Today I decided it would be a nice idea to lay out a strip of paper, set out some paints and various painting tools. All ready for when the twins finished school so the three kids could all do some painting. Well, it didn’t go quite how I expected it to go. Our Painting activity went wrong!
It started off nicely…
They experimented with various brushes, used pom poms to make polka dots and did a little leaf printing. But then they started doing hand prints, then footprints, then eventually the twins started painting their entire bodies! Their school uniform was covered. They had paint all in their underwear and in their hair.
The three year old decided to start copying his sisters and painted his arms and legs blue. He looked like a smurf.
Well, at this point I decided it was time to start running a bath. I carried the kids up the stairs and plonked them into the bath one by one.
Even though our painting activity went wrong, it was still lots of fun!
After I had managed to scrub the paint off their skin and washed the glittery paint out of their hair I started cooking tea. After I cleaned up all the mess I thought it would be a nice treat to have dinner out in the garden. The kids had overall been good and the three year old had a good day in pants! (Day 3) I decided to let them have ice cream as a treat for pudding 🙂
I think I can safety say this was a nanny win, even though it went wrong. All the children had a great time and kept thanking me for a fun day!
