We had a beautiful day for our first momstown Victoria Picassos in the Park program! We met at Lochside Elementary School in School Disctrict 63 for some good ol' fashioned fun with finger paint! No objective except to dip our fingers into some bright, shiny colours and see what appears on the canvas. At first the children wanted paintbrushes, but we only had two, so they experimented with sticks, and soon they were swirling their hands in it. Kids can be funny that way - afraid to get a little messy, but a LOT of mess feels just right!
After a quick clean-up, we asked all the other moms and caregivers around us to come and join us for songs and games with our 20-ft parachute! If you ever see a momstown event taking place, just come on over and join us for our activity, conversation or parachute play. More is always merrier, and momstown aims to be so much more than exclusive events! Our membership is very accessible (only $45 per year, per family) and you are always welcome to drop in and try us out for free!
