Butterflies and buzzing bees


So far we've made ladybirds, snails, and little lizards and now it's time for some flying bugs, butterflies and bees. This time we didn't bake, we didn't sew and we didn't cut and glue, but we did get some special kind of paints out and went nuts. Hope you enjoy.

 Yeah I know it's suppose to be summer, but we've had a few really cold days still, hence the beanie. We used face paint that got left over form Emma's ARTsy birthday party. There were only the basic colours, but lucky I know that when you put red and blue together, you can make purple and so on. She loved the butterfly, who wouldn't?!

Then the next thing was to paint a bee, a buzzing bee. Here's my version of a bee.

This was so much fun, she stayed still for a very long time. In fact, I would recommend this activity for when your child is sick. See when they are sick they don't have a lot of energy to do anything on their own and they need to try to rest anyway, so this activity is perfect as it forces them to be still and in the end it should cheer them up a little.

And if you're feeling a little childish yourself with your other half, why not have a go at painting each other's faces as well, we sure did...

Happy face painting everyone!
