Hi there DNH Readers! It’s Mama Jen and I can’t wait to tell you about my recent visit to Paint the Walls San Diego! Imagine a place where your children can create to their hearts’ content. Imagine a place where they’re given a smock, a brush, some paint and encouraged to literally paint the walls. Well, that place exists and it’s right here in San Diego!
My little guy and I were recently invited to spend the morning at Paint the Walls and I have to admit that I had a few question marks in my head. He didn’t have an experience with paint yet and I wasn’t sure if he would “get it” at just 13 months old. We walked in there and were shown around a bit, handed a paint palette, and then it was all up to him. That’s when the best part happened. He wasn’t quite sure what to do at first, but then he started watching the little girl next us who was about 6 months older. After a bit of observation, he picked up his brush and began producing his very first original artwork. He quickly made is way over to the variety of brushes, sponges, and stamps available and began investigating those as well. I’ll let the pictures of his process speak for themselves.
It wasn’t long before my little explorer began inspecting the rest of the room. He discovered the chalk area right away. There he had the opportunity to draw on the walls AND the floor, but he was most interested in taking the lid on and off of the chalk tub. Haha!
Next, he was onto the ever-popular playdough. So many tools were available and the table was full of kiddos making cookies, worms, pizzas, and variety of the other creations.
My toddler had such a great time at Paint the Walls and I know your kiddos will too! Here’s the best part…you can enjoy it at a discounted price!
