After our flower hunt in the garden last week the wee girl decided that she wanted to do painting with them!
Painting is currently a favourite activity; I think we have painted everyday for the least week! Adding flowers in to the mix gave the wee girl a chance to get a bit more creative, and with mummy wielding the pink glitter glue (because we can’t possibly use ordinary glue now that we have discovered the pink sparkly stuff!) and splodging it as directed, a flower garden started to appear.
She chose pink (of course) and blue paint to get started and very carefully added swirly paint patterns before starting to place the flowers and leaves. I got a row if I put glue in the wrong place, or tried to help in any way! She was completely absorbed by the activity, and it was really lovely to watch as she decided where each flower would go, turning them this way and that until she was happy. The odd bit of tape held things in place as the glue dried, and extra paint was added until finally she announced all done!
The finished product, a flower garden painting…
More abstract interpretation of a garden perhaps, but colourful and pretty nonetheless :)
