Why watercolor paints are perfect for a 2-year-old.

1. They wash off (important).

2. You don't have to put them away. Drying out won't hurt em a bit.

3. When you use them to paint your toenails, Mom doesn't get mad. (See 1.)

4. They create the most interesting art. (Heavy on the blue this time.)

5. If you eat them, the only one who sees what happens internally is mom, and hey, she wasn't watching in the first place, so it's sort of her fault, right?

I haven't been brave enough to try that! I couldn't look away for a second if I did.

Kinda of looks like Cookie Monster! You've got quite a little artist there :)

We do a crazy amount of crafting and painting around here in Marrakesh. I really love what my children produce - it makes me so happy to see them create.

And now that I know the trick about toe painting, I can see an awful lot of pedicures in our futures here:-)
PS Thank you for your kind comment - it was a difficult story for me to post. That was a painful time for me.
