Shameless Plug: Non-toxic toddler safe paint recipe.


  1. Fern, I really enjoyed your photo-commentary. It’s always good to encourage young, budding artists. I was also lucky enough to have a Mom who let me play with paints.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog, just wanted to let you know that I think you have far more patience, as I still am not sure I have the patience to have any children of my own!

  3. Loving the captions of painting, he looks very happy. Shame about the Thomas episode. Theme tune sounds bit different to how I remeber it, but knowing the times, its probably the ‘Phat’ Controller now!

  4. How cute! My daughter also likes to paint. It’s such a fun!
