A day early this week. (Valentines Day tomorrow folks – last chance to enter my giveaway)
Another ‘art’ project. From one of my wee books.
The aim is to paint with food colouring (which I watered down) and then sprinkle salt over the finished product which makes interesting shapes and designs as it absorbs some of the colour around it. When finished you simply brush the salt off.
The Atlas took Flip and the neighbours to crazy mini-golf on Saturday (for over 5s only) so Bounce and I had a gorgeous milkshake date. He rode there on his balance bike, after our photo shoot!
When we got there, instead of going to the play area he chose a ‘real’ table and we chatted away. I asked him about favourites – ‘colour, car, game, person…’ (until he got sick of waiting for me to finish my drink and we retired to the play area).
Bounce also said to me the other day, ‘Why do penguins have wings?’ (He knows they can’t fly). I waited and said, ‘Why do you think they have wings?’
His reply, ‘So they can pick up snow’.
What have you been doing with your littlies this week?
This year I am making more of a conscious effort to have quality moments with my boys. B.M.W.B (becoming the mama I want to be) is my way of recording and hopefully inspiring other mama’s too. Please inspire me with the little moments you are snatching with your little people OR with ideas I could do with mine. If you have blogged about it please leave a comment so we can all visit and encourage each other.
Simple. Achieveable. Intentional: becoming the mama I want to be.
