Australia - It keeps cropping up everywhere
Anyway it turns out that Eddie (the artist) was supposed to be in the first school all day but when he had arrived they told him they were not ready for him and it was suggested by someone that he dropped in to see us in toddlers instead.
Well i am always happy to have extra activities going on to keep the kids entertained (especially activities that someone else is organising and more to the point someone else is clearing up afterwards!) so we got out the tables and i gave him a hand setting up. I have to admit that i couldnt help smiling when he told me that todays art activity was finger painting, based on australian aboriginal art and using little dots to make simple pictures and maps (perfect for little fingers - not so perfect for keeping my mind of the wait for this visa!)
Just to complete the australian theme Eddie had a cd player with him so we all sat and listened to some nice didgeridoo music while we did our paintings!
Callum really got into the finger painting and did several pictures - one of which Eddie pointed out as being a particularly good example of working with paint (it looked a bit like a green smear to me but apparently it was artistically excellent!)
i will make sure that i bring the paintings home next week (they were still wet so i left them hanging on the church hall wall to dry) so i can add some pictures to the blog so you can all see how talented my youngest is.
