“I dream of painting and then I paint my dream,” - Vincent van Gogh.
My toddler is fond of watching children’s program only when she is at home. She spend few hours in the morning and in late afternoon, about 5 hours a day 3 times to 4 times a week or sometimes we both watching the program. She likes Cbbies and Nick Jr. channel. She watches this programme called Humf. Humf is a furry thing.
“One day Humf went to his friend’s house Wallace. Wallace is doing some painting. Humf is interested to do some painting, but he can’t thing what he is going to paint.”
From that episode Pearl was fascinated of Humf and Wallace paintings.
One day in the Blossom Day Nursery in Chester Library. They were doing painting activity. I can tell she was very happy to see me when I was in the nursery to pick her. She said to me “Mummy Pearl painting” Al right what did you paint? “Snakes, Wallace, Humf and Humf’s Dad”. That time I realized she has good memory that was good influence of watching children’s program to kids.
|Pearl's first painting. According to her the top bit are the snakes. The Green paint is Wallace. (exactly the same colour as Wallace) The purple paint is Humf and Red is Humf's Dad. (Which exactly the same colour of the characters)|
Then the nursery worker came with a piece of white paper. She showed it to me and says “that’s Pearl’s painting” Ohh.. that was beautiful art work darling. I’m so proud of you Pearl.
I was so excited to take a photo and upload it to facebook just to share to everybody that my daughter is a good painter and I am very proud of her. I was looking forward to frame her artwork as she wanted to put it on the wall.

Few weeks later they had another painting activity. This time it’s absolutely stunning. I mean it’s amazing a 25 months old toddler can paint such beautiful picture. That comes from her imagination or what she saw on the telly.
|BTW this is PEARL|
I am a stay-at-home mum for Pearl and I spend at least 30 minutes or more every day for reading, colouring, drawing, watching television and helping her to develop her skills.
I would like to encourage the parents to spend some time drawing and painting, reading and watching television at home with your kids. A blank paper and colouring pencils can open the window to your child’s imaginations and let all the colours flow out.
