Finger Painting

Posted on: Thursday, August 21, 2008

I usually try to do art with the boys every day, like drawing and origami. I thought I will try paint this time. I never really wanted to do painting because I fear of the mess and the paint I might get around the house on the white walls.  

I crave in when I thought about how much I will like to play with the wet paint on my fingers and how I wish I could do it when I was a child. How I wish to do hand printing and show mum my dirty little hands but mum too was afraid of mess. The only chance I had was when I was at kindy. I remembered how much I enjoy myself. I have seen for myself too how much Clemens wanted to play paint when he saw it on the morning kids’ programme.

Hence heck with the fear of paint and out came the long kept bottles of non-toxic washable paint. Oh my it was fun!!The boys and I had a great time. Glorious Colourful Mess!!!!

Geeesh I should have done it long ago without fearing this and that. It was also a good chance to teach the boys to clean up and they did a wonderful job.
