The LO is a little wild with the markers, meaning everything is a nice blank canvas including the table, walls and floor. Today we had fun with sharpies and he was so excited. We all, including big brothers, sat together and just experimented with the pen. The LO is beginning to get the feel of watercolour painting. I love how the sharpie work is all bendy and the painting is so straight up and down.
Love the lazy days of Easter. We got a little enthusasitic with our seed buying this year. We’ll just have to see what happens this year. What are you planting?
Friday Finds is the place to unwind, grab yourself a comfy chair and reflect on your past week then plan for the upcoming one.
With a little something to make you think, for them to do and for us to listen or watch……. We are putting ideas into action. Challenging ourselves to do a little differently. Be inspired.
Enjoy your weekend!

We have these markers that are for the bathtub. They are great! Although, they do make the water look funky after the marks have been washed off, but he loves them 🙂

Water markers are so much fun. We go back and forth with those too. I never know if I’m encouraging the wall writing with it. But they do love them. We have ours in a rotation- mainly for my sanity 🙂
