Liam is currently painting a piece which he will present to Nana for her birthday next month. As he painted and Ewan worked with Color Wonder finger paints (THANK GOD), Liam asked me to paint a robot for his bedroom.
"A red one," he asked.
"You help mix the colors then," I replied.
As a way to teach him about colors, I only purchased red, blue, yellow, and white paint. Liam is responsible for mixing his own colors to get greens, browns, blacks, purples, etc. It's also a major pain in the butt and semi-wasteful as he's not yet adept at it, but he's learned a lot from it. So he mixed the colors and I painted his robot.
It was not as disastrous as the last time I tried to paint. I was inspired by images off Google and works on Etsy for this robot:
