A little while ago the living room needed a face lift so out came the paint cans and this is what happened...lol
If you don't want a mess... or a bit of fun... then don't let the kids loose with the paintbrush :) DG is always eager to "help" and I was a bit unsure but he did a grand job, when we had almost finished he said "Nanna I've got paint on my face" but then it ended up on his t-shirt, hands and trousers (accidentally on purpose...lol) Thank goodness for play clothes!! He was kept amused for hours so I think I may let him help next time too.
I had a play at painting on my own with my wacom tablet for this layout and must say I probably had as much fun doing this as DG had while getting messed up... but best bit is I don't have to wash away my paint... took us ages to get it off DG. Though this could have been helped by the fact that he has an aversion to soap and water. Does that ever go away with boys I wonder...lol
