We are a family with three 'wee winkles' exploring the pleasures and perils of educating at home using Scripture, Montessori and a lot of love!

Summer sun

So the idea was to paint a large sun, something easy that both children could be involved in. 
Then I thought we could dunk chickpeas into paint and stick them to the centre to create a textured effect and that was the beginning of the end.
One must strap a 17 month old child down when painting for a start and one cannot expect a three year old child to stick to the plan when the smaller person is giggling her head off while covered in paint.
The result was this...
Nothing like the sun I had envisaged. We had paint EVERYWHERE but they loved it!!!
