All of you would know our adventures with sand and water play the past few weeks but I was getting a bit tired of finding sand everywhere in the house, in spite of strict rules of a bath as soon as they come inside and before the kids touch anything. I cant figure out how, but there is sand everywhere! So to change things a bit I decided to add an easel, some finger paints and a few spray bottles with colored water. M could not squeeze the triggers so she just did some finger painting and wandered off. So I set up another station at her height where she could just sit on the floor of the deck and do her finger painting, but D had a lot of fun with her materials and mixing colors! We rounded up the day by cleaning up in our yard sprinklers and drying off in the night breeze! Here is a picture of D having fun with her easel and art materials! I definitely like this idea of doing art outside whenever possible, the cleanup is sooooo easy!
