We’ve had a couple of messy weeks with nasty strep infections and a few of us down with tonsillitis…so yesterday we decided to handmake a few Xmas presents. I had seen a gorgeous poured cherry blossom painting on Facebook and wondered if it was something the children could have a go at. I found a youtube clip showing the process: if you are interested, this is the link here. Otherwise these photos should show you how to do it if you are interested. For those in NZ, I got my supplies from Warehouse Stationery.
Despite being a terrible artist and having a strong dislike for getting my hands dirty…I absolutely love doing messy play with my children. There is just something about the look of pure joy on their wee faces as they experiment with different textures and mediums. And all three daughters come at painting from different perspectives, and the psychologist (in training) in me loves watching their wee personalities manifested in their play.
