I think this creative bug may be catching! I caught the eldest with a permanent marker pen in her hand the other day and at first I thought she’d just scribbled on the rug. No problem I thought, the rug was second hand anyway and could do with renewing so I took the pen off her and explained what had happened to hubby when he got home. Little did I realise that that was not the only thing she had scribbled on!
Later that day as I was tidying up the rooms my eyes caught sight of the bed cover. I like to keep a pot of pens next to my bed so I can write things out that are on my mind, but I hadn't realised one of those was a permanent marker! I shall think twice about having a stash of pens there now. For my little artist had decided that colouring in the bed sheet was also a great idea! Yes move over Tacey Emin there’s a toddler in my house that doesn't make her bed and creates mess! As you can imagine I wasn't amused that she’d made a masterpiece of our sheet some of which has gone through to the mattress too! So I've decided that renewing the bed sheets is now on the list of things to do too.
So downstairs I gave her the ChalkOla pens we were sent a while back to review. I showed her what to do and she unleashed her creative efforts on one of the windows. We talked through the colours and had so much fun messing about with them together. Just before Daddy got back we wrote a little message on the window saying that we loved him which went down well. The masterpiece here can be easily washed off too.
