Lily the artist?
My daughter Lily was one last week. So this week Lily and my wife, Victoria, have been painting the thank you cards. I advised Lily that she was best doing one colour at once, then letting the paint dry before doing the next colour the following day to avoid durgy colours. This is often the case with oil paints and sometimes I have to stop what I'm doing because everything is just getting too wet and you feel like you're just pushing paint around the board. So Lily painted blue the first day and then did yellow the following day. She certainly enjoyed dipping her hands and fingers into the paint, but Victoria and I are still recovering from the shock of paint EVERYWHERE!!
