Playdates with paint and puzzles

Mary Jane's mommy the Thumbstumbler invited us over for a playdate so the mommies could talk like adults for five minutes the kids could socialize. Mary Jane* is really into puzzles, so she and Starboy worked on a couple of giant floor puzzles, and played kitchen.

I brought over some spring-colored Bingo markers (or, Dingo Markers, as Starboy calls them, but I've started calling them Splat Markers) and the artists make some small works.

It's fascinating to see their different approaches, given the same tools. Mary Jane discovered that if you press the sponge marker tips together, paint drips out onto the floor.

*Starboy's friends and family get code names, to protect their privacy.
