Painting Fun AND Giveaway!

Our school holidays have kicked off here, and each day is now a flurry of activities to keep the children all amused. One of their most favourite things to do is good old fashioned Painting.


I know many parents worry about the mess when I mention the word paint, but honestly it doesn’t have to be messy at all. I invested in a plastic easel which is wipe clean, and I always use a plastic sheet underneath. I found the best plastic mats are actually the disposable tablecloths that are left over from the kids birthday parties. If you are still worried then why not take the painting outside.


I love letting the children loose outside with paints, it really is great for letting get messy. I also make sure they are wearing an apron to help protect their clothes. Of course the aprons we use are the Minene Apron which comes included with paints and a paintbrush which fit rather lovely into the plastic pocket on the front.

IMG_0171The sides fasten with velcro and are adjustable meaning this will fit a range of children from small to big.


You can buy the Painting Apron over on the Minene website, RRP is £12, but if you have a good look through the colours some are as little as £8!

Now here is your chance to win one for your own budding artist!

  1. I love green & have done for as long as I can remember. Now I have a son I’m starting to like navy too 🙂

  2. Great design, love the pocket at the front and velcro fastenings (it will last soo much longer). have tried ones with sleeves but my boys always hate putting them on. Godd variety of colours too. Purple’s always a winner in our house (though I’m not very good at mixing it myself!)
