I recently bought a set of finger painting material with stamps at National Book Store. You see, B wanted to learn how to do finger painting and since I was too busy looking for a job, it was only last week that I finally had time to go get a kit for him. Luckily, I also had time to clean and sort his supplies closet and I found an old apron he could use to protect his clothes when finger painting.
I let him do it on his own and simply encouraged him when he became frustrated coz his first attempt wasn't successful. Sometimes, I feel that I may have turned him into a book nerd too much and that his creativity could have been hampered coz he feels that everything needs to be perfect or fit into a pattern. I'm glad that lately, and with his, he's learning to just let go and let his inner artist do the work.
Loved how we spent this morning together. B with his finger painting while I look on the sideline and took photos. :)
