Adventures in Unschooling

Mirror, mirror on the wall…

Posted on: March 19, 2009

I wanted to quickly post some pics of our painting extravaganza.


We pulled out their Crayola finger paints and went at that big mirror we were colouring on a week or two ago.

Of course it didn’t take long for Trey to stick his foot in the paint. But really, how tempting is a plate of paint right at foot level?

So I hurriedly made a little walk-way for him to walk up and down leaving his footprints.

And by the way, if you get the paint before it dries it is pretty easy to wash off and those beeswax crayons came off really easily with a little bit of cream of tartar sprinkled on a wet rag. The carpet was a little more complicated but most of it came out using my homemade all-purpose cleaner.

That looks like great fun and yes, I can lend you some books when next we meet.
