HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my big little one :) !

The Welcome Sign.... It helps to have an artist for a mum :)

So the Big Birthday finally arrived, after the whole year waiting and planning... it was just great for all of us!

This year she went with a Zack and Cody theme, from the invitations, to the dress codes to of course the party decor!
My little girls (ages 6 and 2.5) actually painted the portholes! blue paint for the sea and sky and white waves.. I added the finishing touches with the outlines... all these were taken to the party venue and then back home for the party the next day :)

The Portholes turned out so well!

Close-up of the portholes, done by my little artists!

Patterns and Paint

We talked about patterns- about how sometimes just repeating something over and over can make a very pretty picture! We found some patterns on our clothes ad then tried to make our own.

It seems simple, but this sort of activity actually requires the children to think and sort out things before they have a picture that looks convincing to others; and then they think of the color combinations and the mediums... Phew, thats a lot of work for one great hour :)

by Jayant, age 4- Candy wrappers and geometric shapes: great work from the youngest in class

by Sanjana, age 6- couldn't this pass for some fabric? :)

by Zainab, age 10 - Monster Eyes :) lovely work by a tween!
