The kids have been steadily working through the various craft kits they were given for Christmas - tile mosaics, a painted clock, trinket boxes and decorated diaries among them - but on Sunday morning, with an extremely hot day looming (it got to a little over 40 celsius here), they just wanted to do some free painting.
The eldest went abstract and fluorescent
while the 5 year old painted a scene for her big sister
and the 23 month old wanted to paint only in greens and blues. When asked what she was painting, she replied firmly, "Deep, deep inna sea. Cool kwi-ut fish, that me!" (She was referencing her favorite Dr Seuss book, My Many Coloured Days, which represents moods as colours / animals. The green-day "cool and quiet fish" is one of C's favorites).
