Today was a hide inside from the world kind of day, to have fun with my little ones while forgetting everything that was going on! We decided that we would start the day with some sensory fun of painting with puffy paint!
Puffy paint is very simple to make, and we had all the things that we needed to make in our house! You make it with Three simple ingredients; shaving foam, pva glue & paint.
You mix together a shaving foam with the same amount of pva glue, though don’t mix it too much or too fast as it will just turn into a runny mess! Then add your paint and mix slowly again and keep adding the paint until you get it to the colour that you want!
Then thats it done, let the fun begin!
My little princess was straight into it and was having so much fun! So much so that I had to stop her from covering her whole body!
My little man wasn’t quite so keen.. it started off fine for the first few minutes.. until he then realized that it was all over his hands and he wasn’t to keen on that! I quickly cleaned his hands then hunted out a paintbrush to try and win him back over to the idea of it!
He started to enjoy it again a bit more again then knowing that he didn’t have to touch it, and with mum stood on the side to clean his hands if he wanted it off!
He then got brave enough to paint his own hands! Though that didn’t last too long, but at least he tried it! =]
After everyone getting cleaned we enjoyed a little dance to some songs on YouTube. His little bum wriggle gets me every time, check it out!
After our dancing and painting it was then time for his nap and me and my little girl made cupcakes!
Then we all enjoyed a little cuddle when he woke up and needed a little cwtch back to sleep!
My precious pair and I enjoyed a quiet day at home letting the news sink.
