A smashing colourful time

The girls love messy play and with the lovely sunshine we could head outside and be creative.  We took our washable paint and our OXO Good Grips potato masher and went outside.

Getting ready for messy play

I set the paint out on the grass for the girls and let their imagination take over.

My eldest began to squeeze the paint into the tray, very neatly, ready to start paining.

It wasn't long before her sister started using the OXO tot potato masher to make pretty pictures in the paint.  I thought she might make prints on the paper and showed her, but she wasn't interested

 Instead she was interested in mixing the colours and stamping in the tray, even with her shoes!

The girls had a smashing good time with the potato masher and with their feet.  My youngest created the following master piece, which I think was supposed to be a heart.

The potato masher was really good fun for the girls to play with in the paint and made some interesting patterns.
