Я наверное надоела своими дето-пузатыми фотками? А занимашек давно небыло. Исправляюсь! Все любят рисовать мелками? А жидкими пробовали? Если ещё нет, то ловите рецепт. Пакет, молоток ? (убивать никого не будем) #шуткадня , мел, вода, ёмкости для наших красок. Крошим мел в пакете при помощи молотка, сыпем в ёмкости и заливаем водой, чтобы получилась такая сметанка разноцветная. Всё ? Берём кисть и на улицу! (у нас оказалась только для покраски волос… Да простит нас бабушка Оля?) Если захотите порисовать дома на бумаге, то добавьте в смесь немного ПВА, чтобы она не обсыпалась после высыхания. #андрюшагномрисуетвезде #развивашки_mamydetki #андрюшагном_развивашки #чудоутка_оразвивашках

Когда твой сын фанат машинок что только не придумаешь ? Вот такой город мы нарисовали вместе с Марсом за 20 минут на прогулке. Рисовала, конечно, в основном я, а Марс скорее руководил процессом: показывал куда дорога ведёт, где дом "ставить", где магазин, где лес. В планах у нас добавить сюда ещё и железнодорожные пути и паркинг нарисовать и …. В общем в этом творчестве пределу фантазии нет ✌️ Для конкурса #конкурс_все_на_улицу от @okopilka @mom_and_zahar @my_little_son_egor ✅ творческое задание #mars_art #marsmemos #мемуарымарса #гуляем #машинки #парк #политехническийпарк #чемзанятьребенканаулице #чемзанятьребенкалетом #творчествосдетьми #детскоетворчество #рисованиесдетьми
