(Goblin is 31 months)
Granny used to be a primary school teacher and still tutors several children as well as doing Sunday school at her church. As a result she still has lots of craft supplies stashed around her house. While we were playing in the garden I saw the massive leaves on the rhubarb bush and thought they'd make some great leaf prints.
So off I went rummaging in Granny's cupboards and came back with a plastic tray, yellow, green and blue paint and a roll of wallpaper lining. My plan was to get Goblin to pour the paint onto the tray and then I'd show him how to print the leaves and give him a go. But as usual Goblin had other ideas.
He wanted to do foot print painting. It did make a great effect when he started because he ran the length of the roll. But he soon ran over the same bits so often that the foot prints were lost and it was just a big mush of green.
The rhubarb leaves looked great. I also found some Marsh Marigolds growing in Granny's pond, and these made very pretty and delicate prints. You can see them around the edge of the rhubarb leaf in the top picture above. And the green and blue leaf print is a type of geranium (apparently). This also made a great print.
