Summer means my son can go out and play with less layers! I dont have a big space in the house for a garden but I think we are lucky to have a terrace. I have few potted plants there and I don't want it cluttered so the center is clear ever since we arrive here 3-1/2 years ago. Convenient location too as you open the kitchen and its there.
We are renting so I am always scared of my son holding something with color like pens, chalks and watercolor or poster paints. So i hide them.
But this week I took some of it out and let him enjoy some sun time after school. I was ironing and yet I can see him from where I am so i feel safe too. This helped a lot as I have some ironing time and he is enjoying his time. Win, win!
He took my Sainbury's shopping bag and turned it into a painting apron. Complete with a belt! And then he started painting. I have to admit that the quality of our watercolor is a bit dodgy. Its not coloring much!!! So when Daddy arrived he helped him with the colors and painted with him.
And it being our terrace with clothesline, we were able to dry his work and display it too!
