Oliver really loves to paint.
Actually - Oliver really loves to make a mess.
And he can make a big mess, when he paints.
Thus. Oliver loves to paint.
I try to limit it to once a week. I for one don't have the wall space to show off all of his creations (and let me tell you - they are creative!) I also really hate cleaning up the paint. So once a week kid, once a week.
This week he is fall painting.
He was a little confused when I only let him use orange, yellow and red.
He kept reaching for the purple paint.
Its his favorite.
The color. Not the paint.
This week I also let him paint with a fork. He was alittle confused but I told him to just go with it. So he did. I even caught him trying to eat the paint off the fork a few times. He's a smart kid. He knows what a fork is for.
So here are some steps for fall painting - toddler style
Step one: Wear your pajamas. And have some crazy hair.
Step two: Wear your lipstick. Er, paint. Become one with the painting. And also keep that crazy hair.
Step three: Add more paint to your face. Its much more creative than painting on paper anyways.
Step four: Paint with a fork. What? A Fork. Yes. Oliver - just go with it.
