Activity 27: Bottle Flowers

22 Nov

Princess Peanut and Teacher MummaOriginal pin: Inner child fun

I loved this pin, and it’s been sitting in my Pinterest folder begging to be done for a while now!!!

We started off with our trusty Crayola finger paints and a 600ml bottle. I thought this size would be easier for Princess Peanut to hold.

Princess Peanut was eager to start -although she found the idea of “stamping” tricky. She was happy to use the bottle as a bit of an alternate paint brush 😉

But with a bit of practice we got there…well sort of…

Stamping, stamping, smouching…..

And the final product!

Verdict: There wasn’t a lot of preparation involved (I really should do more “messy” activities, as the thought of it is worse than the actual activity!). Princess Peanut needs to work on her stamping, but otherwise she had fun. Like any activity with this age group, it was over pretty quickly, but enjoyable while it lasted.

Extension/ Adaption: Apart from doing this activity again at a later stage I think the rest is up to the child’s imagination and interpretation! 😉

Activity 23 Ziplock painting!

28 Aug

I’m a little behind in my posting so instead of heading each post with a “week” number, it will just be an activity number now 😉

So I came across this little gem at be a fun mum and LOVED the idea of doing this on a paper plate (I thought this might withstand the paint better than just paper).

My other inspiration came from the Hippie Housewife which originally got me on to the idea of ziplock painting, and also The Misadventures of Kayla Aimee

So we started off with a few different colours in the bag (the girls are just beginning to name these colours in the past few weeks – exciting times!)IMG_8306

Here’s SweetPea looking serious – painting is a serious task!

Princess Peanut would have to agree (although I think she was suspicious that this was a messy activity).

As a bit of a twist we gave the girls some icypole sticks and cotton buds to use.

Ahh..that’s better SweetPea, such a lovely smile!

Woohoo! That’s Princess Peanut’s hands getting right in there!

Yup and don’t we look like we are having fun!

Such concentration from these girls!

My partner in crime then decided to draw some pictures in the paint (like a whiteboard) as a language-based activity.

Verdict: Soooooo easy!! And no mess!! Woohoo!! The girls enjoyed this and were kept busy for a good 20 mins or so, before they needed a change of pace. It was a nice activity to do as the girls are beginning to notice and name colours.

Extension/ Adaption: the language based activity from my partner in crime worked really well. It’s a great activity to learn how primary colours make secondary colours for older children.
