Magic painting.

IMG_1093This is not a detailed project but more an idea.


My boys have re-found magic painting books, we first discovered these when they were toddlers. (Though I remember having one or two when I was little). We recently bought some new ones when out and about. If you are unfamiliar with these books they are great mess-free painting. Giving your child the chance an activity to explore painting with little setting/clearing up. It is simple and affordable, you don’t need to have any paints. You simple dip a brush (often provided with the book) into water, brush it over the black and white patterns and then there is an element of surprise as you wait for the colours to magically appear. The trick is not to use too much water and keep the brush clean. The books we used this time were usbourne ones. These were not particularly cheap despite being reduced and having a voucher. However the paper was high quality, good pictures for older children and they did produce bright colours. Though you can easily find similar books at ‘the works’ or poundland.
