I am so excited to guest post over here at one of my favorite blogs. I want to thank Vicky for giving me this opportunity.
My daughter Lele loves to paint!!! Every time I ask her "do you want to do a craft?" she will always ask if she could paint. So we did some painting but used something other than a brush. We used a paper towel tube roll...I cut it into three parts and tied it with a rubber band.
She loves the color purple so that is the paint color that we used. I let her have fun "freestyle" painting for a few minutes on a piece of card stock paper and I was pleased that she loved it.
While she was painting, I cut out some triangles because we'll be making an ice cream counting station with this. Lele with mommys' help :) taped the triangles onto the cardstock paper and then used our paper towel tube to paint the "ice cream" like this:
She was so excited about this because it was something completely different than what she's done before. We repeated this process a few times. Each page had a different number of ice cream cones. She loves counting, so she counted how many ice cream cones there were in each page and then counted the number of scoops on each page.
We had a blast!! If your kids were a little bit older, you can color the ice cream scoops as well or try different colored scoops/cones... possibilities are endless :)
Thanks so much Mama Mia! I can't wait to try this with my girls. They love ice cream and we have been saving paper towel tubes forever.
