'A child's art is the best masterpiece' or so I believe.
In the month of March, Pahal often complained of not getting a brilliant idea to do something creative. She didn't fully know the meanings of these words - brilliant and creative - but she used both while presenting her complaint.
One day I got a brilliant idea to tackle her creativity! :-)
I had bought a plain white t-shirt for Pahal so that she could paint on it - anything that she wishes - and turn it into a unique piece.
I handed over the plain, white t-shirt to Pahal and asked her to paint on it. Initially, a little hesitant she quickly decided that she would paint a flower on it. This is what the t-shirt became of after Pahal swirled few brushes on it.
Since it was the first of our such experiment, we didn't know the 'rules' and as a result, the paint ran onto the back side of the t-shirt as well.
This is how the masterpiece looks from the sides.
With first project over within few hours, I was now ready to move onto another experiment - painting on a pyjama!
This time I took care of few things:
1. I inserted a roll of newspapers inside the leg of the pyjama that had to be painted. This didn't let the colors transfer to the back side of the cloth.
2. I hung it on the cloth hanger for hours in the sun. Right after the painting, I dried the pyjama in the sun so that the colors are dried naturally and do not spread out.
3. I helped her by drawing an outline of the art so that it is easy for her to paint and the painting looks a bit like professional. :-)
And that's my girl flaunting her work in all its glory.
The blue flower on the wall is hand painted by my friend, Gunjan Gupta. You guys can check out her page here.
This was it guys. If you have tried something quirky with your kids, share with me! :-)
