H and I have two mornings a week when is it just us. We often meet up with friends or go to a play group, but I like to spend some quality time with her on my own too. Just recently she has become very chatty and very funny.
Last week we had a painting session using DUPLO instead of paintbrushes inspired by The Nurture Store’s no paintbrushes allowed post.
We started off with cotton buds, before moving onto bigger, messier objects.
We made our own Duplo stampers.
which seemed to work quite well.
H loved it, and I did too.
looks lots of fun! Duplo is great stuff 😀
Its fab isn’t it?
Cathy @ NurtureStore
Thanks for joining in. The Duplo makes really great patterns doesn’t it? There’ll be a new art explorers project tomorrow if fancy another challenge.
oooh yes, I’ll be there to check it out. x
ahh looks like she was really enjoying that…and I love her little hands on the blocks! x
Thanks. I love chubby little hands!
You really are so creative Emma, I should do more things like this with Mads.x
H really enjoyed it. She loves a big bowl of water to play in too. x
That looks like soooo much fun and actually inspired me to go and do some painting with Oli using anything other then paintbrushes! 🙂
This looks like lots of fun. We love Duplo here so may have to give this a try x
What a great idea! Lovely pictures, and the different results are great! Emma 🙂 PS. Love the new look! xx
You tried doing this with puffy paint its a mixture of shaving foam and poster paint.. Love what you did with the Duplo x

Thanks for linking to Kids Get Crafty! ~ Alissa and Maggy
What a FUN idea!! They look like they are having so much fun! Thanks for linking up to TGIF! I look forward to seeing what you link up this week,
My one year old just received a fisher price little people building set which she picked up on rather quickly. [she gets the stacking concept] im looking at the lego duplo sets for her for christmas because well, they’re way cuter [and not painted] but im wondering how they compare size wise?? how big compared to “little people” are the duplo figurines???
A similar size, but not quite as chunky. H has played with DUPLO since being 1 and my 5 year old still plays with it. Definitely a worthwhile toy to buy.
