Picture the scene. Busy working mum, trying to finish off a project while entertaining the kids who would not go to bed. I let them colour in my face to keep them quiet. I turned myself into a human doodle pad to get some peace. This photo collage will showcase some of their previous work (and yes my study is usually a shit hole, I am not going to lie and hide it!).
We’ve done this a few times now, sometimes face, sometimes hair, sometimes both. The moisturiser in the hair was a particular low point. As was the time I caught Molly with actual scissors about to cut my hair! Face is generally preferable to hair because my goodness the practising ponytails hurts!!
Molly had this as an idea for a YouTube video. She’s the youngest so I felt I should let her have her mark in it so I agreed. So there I am - on the screen, looking ridiculous for you all to see! Watch us here -
Can spin it into good parenting - its creativity and messy play right? So you could call it art right? Whatever it was, it was fun and thankfully it washed off!
Take care, Abby x
