Literally the second Alice turned 1 I have been itching to start some arts and crafts with her. I say 1 because all the age limits on the paints and crayons start from 12 months! I couldn't wait to start hanging up some pictures and watching Alice become creative. So the other day I laid out an oil cloth table cloth, put down some paper and let Alice go mad with washable felt tips and finger paint!
I found myself having to constantly move things away from her mouth as she attempted to eat it all! But after a few attempts we managed to get some colour on the paper. I literally could not have been prouder of her. It was such a great activity and held her attention for about 20 minutes (good for a 1 year old!). Though in hindsight, I think I was being a little hopeful with the paintbrush. Hands are better! Hehe!
