Liam received an easel from GG (Aaron's mum) for his birthday. It has been getting a lot of use. It sits in the lounge/dining area and both the kids go to it often during the day for a bit of a scribble and a colour. We have all sorts of lovely artworks being created, the pile is growing and I'm realising I won't be able to keep them all.
We carried it outside for a bit of messy painting on a warm winter's day. (I have to say we have had a best winter this year - so many warm sunny days like this have meant a lot of playing out on the deck - wonderful).
It didn't take Liam long to get the lids off the non-spill cups and do a bit of mixing. Nevermind. I'm glad we decided to take the easel outside.
We have had another wonderful warm winter day today. I can't believe it's Thursday already, this week has flown by. My mum has been up visiting for a few days, the kids have had a ball (it would be so lovely to have all you grandparents just down the road). She bought some special things with her for the kids which I will share just as soon as I have a chance to photograph them.
Must get off here and get dinner started and shut some doors and windows, it's getting a little cool outside now.
By the way the easel is from Ikea. I wish we had Ikea in NZ.
