Kids just love to play with paint. Give them a brush and paint and just see them go.. Sometimes, with a little guide, we can help them create something nice. Here, we created a footprint butterfly.

I’ve pushed forward the publication of my Christmas crafts to mid of October. You can actually see my first Christmas craft this Thursday. I hope the ideas may help them. :) Do let me know how I can help further.

Thanks for the inspiration :-)

Ethan’s really good in painting now =)

your ideas are stimulating my senses again! haha!

Yes Ayie,

I’m glad that he has improved in his painting skills. :)

I love the way Ethan showed his concentration while doing his finger printing.

Merryn, I wonder would Ethan dirty the floor with the colours?

Gail Godwin~ Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre.
