The adventures of Jack Jack

The adventures of a first time Mummy and my son Jack.

Messy play

My son Jack loves to make a mess, what like boy doesn’t?  So when Mummy got the paints out he was in his element. I made my own home made edible paints using the recipe from the imagination tree in case Jack decided on a little taste test.560062_10200395591710739_1442510353_n

He enjoyed squishing the paint between his fingers and then making a splat on the paper with his hand. Even though I had made my own paint Jack didn’t once try to eat it so I was very happy about that.

 We tried experimenting with different brushes and even some of Jacks cars to make different patterns in the paint.

 By the end he was a very messy little boy and then it was time for operation clear up :).

“Mum I’ve finished.”

 He was delighted with the mess he had made and continued to paint himself while I ran his bath.11205_10200396783860542_2043197271_n

Jack enjoyed painting so much that I wanted to try other messy play but hopefully with less mess so I  laid out a pad of paper and some crayons to see what he would do. At first Jack just tried to eat the crayons but he soon got the hang of it and has had a few attempt at creating some masterpieces.
