I think this Summer is going to be a stinker. It’s already warm here, which doesn’t bode well for this little cool weather loving, hot blooded gal! *sigh*
But what it does mean is outdoor fun and activities that don’t get much of a look-in in cooler weather. Things like vegetable/finger/foot painting, for instance! Because there’s not much that’s appealing about putting little tootsies in cold, wet paint on a cold Winter’s day. But it certainly is fun making messes like this when the sun is shining and the bees are buzzing and the day is just generally lovely.
I’m sure there’s a number of developmental benefits that can be derived from finger painting, but I can’t actually tell you what they are. All I know is it’s fun and messy, and that’s probably what matters most at this age!
I hope your days are filled with as much sunshine and colour as ours are! And if, where you are, the sun ain’t shinin’ outside, make sure it’s shinin’ inside.
