Fun with wax and paint

21 Feb

Today the mini men and I decided to do some art. Mr 4 has been having fun with mystery letters at daycare lately, so he wanted to continue that at home. We took the always eventful trip to the supermarket for supplies and after a sushi detour we made it home to start creating!

While the mini men had a snack and watched a cartoon I drew some words, letters and pictures on some paper with a candle, then using sponges and paintbrushes we covered the paper with water colour paints to reveal the mystery images. Mr 1 was much more interested in drinking the painty water and there was some spillage but over all the activity was a success and fun was had by all!

    What a fantastic idea. I’ll be doing this with the toddler tomorrow. Claire (mummy of many talents). X
