Ruby has a lovely time at our local nursery. She often comes home with paint or felt tip adorning her face, hands and feet. She can make as much mess as she wants there.
We think it’s important to encourage her to be “artistic” – or, at least, make a complete mess of the place – so we’ve got some finger paints and child-friendly felt tips at home too. We cover the house with plastic sheets before we start and let her get on with it.
Well, Jo does most of that, but I would help too. Honest.
