Textured Painting, 35 mths

Monkey loves painting and given a choice it is often a go to activity for him. Most of the time I am happy to let his imagination take the lead but a few weeks ago I thought I would spice some things up and introduce him to the idea of painting with some new textures.

We had fun with bubble wrap..

and feathers.

It was great fun and such a simple activity. Monkey loved seeing the different results for each of the textures and we talked about what they felt like.

  1. These are some great textures. I’ve been trying to do some more messy play with Evie lately & haven’t even thought about using other textures & materials other than regular paint brushes. This is such a great idea.

    It looks like you had loads of fun! 😀



  2. Oh yes I love this (well apart from the dreaded cotton wool 😉 ) i bet monkey would love the rollers I made from a loo roll and string. I shall tweet the link! (Don’t want to leave spammy comments!)

    Thanks for linking up to #ToddlerApprovedTuesday.

Thanks for taking the time to write something. I love comments and read every one xx
