Lilly's first painting experience

As many of you know, I am a big supporter of sensory play for little ones. A friend of mine did some cute little paintings with her bubba which inspired me to paint with Lilly too! I headed to the $2 shop and grabbed some bright, non-toxic paint (just in case) and some canvases. When we got home, I put an old sheet on the floor and dabbed some paint onto the canvas. Next I wrapped some cling wrap around it and popped Lilly down for some painting fun. She loved smooshing the paint with her…

What's the Big Deal with Pinterest?

"What's the big deal with Pinterest?" my husband asked me as he saw me searching some of my pinned boards.

One of my daughter's favourite sensory activities, that she first played with at preschool, was Soap Slime. Now, this is definitely messy play, but it's made from soap, so it must be clean, messy play, right? Well, sort of. It depends on the colouring. Since the lesson we…

"Paintsicles" Frozen paint cubes for creative fun. From Learn with Play at Home.

Paintsicles. Frozen paint cubes for creative fun.

Are you following us on Pinterest? Thanks to a recent heat wave in Melbourne, we've been having lots of fun playing with ice. The other day I thought I'd combine our love of painting by making some frozen paint cubes for the kids to paint with. I wasn't actually sure how well it'd all turn out, but the results speak for themselves. I've since tested it with a variety of different paints and found that whilst the results vary, they all provide a fun, sensory and unique painting experience…
