Jackson Pollock may have enjoyed this

Jackson Pollock may have enjoyed this.



We had our monthly mom and daughter book club meeting over the weekend. We read Action Jackson by Jan Greenberg and Sandra Jordan. After the story we went outside and tried painting like Jackson Pollock.










I'm not sure what they gaggle of girls enjoyed more . . . painting or washing up.




Does anyone else find it funny (and/or funnily disturbing) that the warning on the side of the 5 gallon bucket is incredibly similar to what the girls are actually doing?

well, they are bigger and there is no fear that the weight of their heads will up end them into the bucket. i remember when they didnt have the warnings on the buckets and their were very sad accidents. i never thought of a toddlers head being so much heavier than the lower portion of the body. having my precious victoria almost drown when she was 21 months in a kiddie wading pool...in a coma for a week, but is perfectly fine now. it is very scarry. they looked like they had a ball! :-)

OK, so much fun for kids...but I WANT TO DO THIS TOO! Couldn't you just see this as a adult party...too bad most big people are too intimidated to give this a try!

How much fun.
The fact that the children and the warning on the bucket is alike is humorous, in the I-really-shouldn't-laugh-but-that-is-funny kind of way.
