A spin on painting

Ha- pun intended? Yes, indeed!! I first saw this craft on Play at Home Mom, which I have been madly in love with. I have always been interested in trying new things for the boys, well mainly Aaden, right now, to do. All while he is learning--- but completely oblivious to it :)

So, all we have here is a salad spinner, non coated paper plates, and water color. However, I also tried tempra paint. Both worked fine. Each had a different look. For us, the liquid water color was easier, because it was in a squirt bottle. I need to find some little droppers, that would make things even easier, and help with fine motor skills. Yep, I need to get on top of that. 

 Getting plate into position...

 How about some pink...

 ... why not every color we own?

 spin spin spin!!!

As you can see, he was quite proud of himself, as was I!! We discussed all the colors afterward, had to make it a little learning experience, while it was still fun!! It was pretty neat, also, some of the water colors made 'new' colors. He was in awe!

Now, I will admit- I am, for the most part, a very clean, organized person. BUT, and yes, there is a but, there is something about letting your kids get dirty while they learn, and have fun!! They are kids!! That's their joy! Which brings joy to Momma! Just nothing better than a huge smile on your baby's faces.

Until next time...

With love,
Courtney :)
