Painting Day,Love and Peace

This is rather all over the place so bear with me!
Today was painting day and we changed it up a bit. K has been working with the color yellow for months now so I decided it was time to move on to another color. She is now using red,while I use up the last of the yellow (You are supposed to paint along with your child,but in a childlike manner).

We picked up a 'magic crayon' at Kinderhaus on Tuesday and K loved it! It's beeswax and you first drawn on your paper with it,then you wet your paper like normal for wet on wet painting, brush on your paint and voila



the paint won't stick to where you colored. This is similar to how batik clothing is made :)

K wanted to experiment with her blue beeswax crayon to see if it would do the same thing...it kind of did...



C is almost as in love with Midnight as K is. She is always searching him out to cuddle and giggle with. Midnight is so great and easy going. He's perfect for the girls.


Geisha on the other hand is still spooked easily (she was a rescue cat) and stays far away from the girlies. But she will still pose for the camera.



Lastly I had to share a find at Kinderhaus Toys

Just wanted to say how inspiring I find your blog...we might have to get our paints out this weekend, it is such a peaceful thing to do, and it's feeling very peaceful here with all our new (and much needed) rain. Love the Obama family - how very cute! You should email this to Ostheimer, I am sure they would enjoy it too!

What a sweet kitty!!

Where did you get the Magic Crayon? Could you just take a piece of beeswax and do the same thing?

We've done the crayon/painting thing a few times and the kids always love it. I love the picture of C cuddling the cat. Too sweet!

That photo of your two sleeping babies is too much! I love it! And the Obama Family, too!

What a fun post! Thanks for sharing. We are still not doing the wet-on-wet painting in our home yet...we really need too! There just always seems to be something else...ahhh. Love the photo with the cat! What a tolerant feline! Love the Obama family--Mia on the way to school said "we just love Obama, right Mama?" ha!

Melissa Ellen, thank you that's very kind of you to say!

boatbaby, i got the magic crayon from kinderhaus toys (link in the sidebar on my blog). I think it's pure beeswax so i *think* you might be able to do the same thing with regular beeswax. couldn't hurt to try! let me know if you do!

thanks so much everyone for all your sweet words :)

Great painting! The yellow spiral is perfect this time of year when I'm yerning for the warmth! And I just love the symbology of the spiral.
What a cute kid/cat pic!!!
