So.... it's official- my son is a 40-year old toddler. Not thinking, I bought FINGER PAINT, and we ended up using a paint brush so his hands wouldn't get slimy. We also tried out CHALK PAINT outside that was a little disappointing. I think regular chalk from the dollar store is way more fun. The nice thing is that it is super easy to clean up! I am loving the summer though, that's a surprise. He is at the perfect age to have scavenger hunts, picnics on the grass and playing hopscotch. What a difference from last summer! I don't think these next 3 months will be as long as I thought they would be, in fact, the time is flying by!
