Smiling like Sunshine: It's all about the process

It's all about the process

You know how much we enjoy arts and craft at the Smiling like Sunshine Headquarters. It's half-term here so having a spent a beautiful day at the park during the weekend, I thought we could do some autumnal craft.
I asked Defne if she'd like to do some painting using her sponges and she happily agreed. I was thinking that we could cut out some leaves from her painting and make a tree.
I prepared the table: A large sheet of paper, some autumnal colours on the tray and she started.
I enjoy watching my daughter and it is fantastic to see what she comes up with.
She painted the sheet mixing all the colours, then wanted to stick some sparly sequins and jewels.
Then she wanted to use her fingers and did some finger painting.
So we didn't get to make a tree but I love how proud and contented she was with her picture. It's all about that really. It's all about the process, letting her mind and creativity unfold.
