Painting Activity

Most of the time I was a bit reluctant to let lil prince do painting activity as I find it messy (coz mummy has to clean up).  But on the other hand, sometimes, I noticed that he actually enjoys paintings.  Further more it is also a bit difficult to handle two kids at a time for painting activity as the younger one will be disturbing her brother.

Last weekend, while lil princess was taking her afternoon nap, I took this opportunity to let lil prince do some paintings.

I only took out a few colours (red, green, yellow and blue).  I used my plastic container (from the food cups that I bought from Daiso) to put the water for him to clean his brush (instead of changing the water so often).

He painted three pictures on that day--> a car, a helicopter and a flower.  I know this is no big deal but this was only his second time painting with a brush and somehow mummy is proud of his achievement.  The whole painting session was neat too.  Not as messy as I thought it will be.  These three master piece are still handing in my dining hall as lil prince said it is his artwork!

Perhaps, I need to have more of this painting activities in future.  I guess it's time for mummy to admit that my lil prince is growing up.

  1. That's very neat for a 4YO+ kid, good job to your prince! I also do not like my kids to do painting or play with playdough at home as it's super messy and I dont have the time to clean up the mess. I plan to let my girls do painting in the bathroom during the school hols. Easier to clean up haha!

  4. Very neat and nice, esp the flower one. I think Chloe also cannot paint as good as this haha. I seldom let her do painting because of the same reason too... lazy to clean up the mess.
