We've been doing a lot of painting outside. Peyton loves to paint! Yesterday she rubbed paint all over her hands and said, "good idea. good job, hands". :/ She has hardly touched a paint brush since.
Warm days make for easy clean up. :) It makes me sad when some parents won't let their kids get messy. They're missing out on so much. Peyton has a lot of fun exploring different textures. More clean up for me is nothing compared to the joy she is getting out of being a kid and not worrying about getting dirty.
She informed me, "no eat it". ha. For the record, Peyton only paints with non toxic paint.
I don't know why she insists on standing and sitting in Daragan's water bucket. The side is broken from where Digory chewed it up, and Peyton's legs always get scratched up, but she insists on getting in. Notice her old duck bath that is right next to it... I guess, it doesn't have the same appeal. Maybe she is a fan of orange?
