Let your wee ones paint the town red. And blue.

And green, yellow, and orange with purple spots.

Calling all parents - discover the hidden artist in your littlies from 10.30am to 12noon on 10 September in Aotea Square at a free, paint-your-heart-out event to launch the ASG Parent and Child Show Auckland.

There'll be a HUGE, 4A0-sized canvas (that's 2378mm x 1682mm big!) set up with all the paints, brushes, stamps, and other paraphernalia needed to get your wee ones daubing, smearing, splodging, and splattering on a grand scale.

"This is definitely one to wear your old clothes to!" says Dona White, mother of three and CEO of North Port Events, who organises the ASG Parent and Child Show.

"It'll be a wonderful, fun activity to add to your morning, plus there'll be lots of spot prizes, including free tickets to the ASG Parent and Child Show Auckland, an opportunity to win a the WotWots appearance at your preschool and prize giveaways from some of our excellentexhibitors.

"The painted canvases will be auctioned at the show to raise money for Plunket.

"Many thanks to our partners, the Auckland Kindergarten Association, which is supplying staff, paints, equipment, and expertise, and the guys at Produce Pronto, who will be giving out free fruit."

The event will give parents an early heads-up about the ASG Parent and Child Show Auckland, New Zealand's premier exhibition for expectant couples and new parents that provides a one-stop-shop full of essential parenting products in an easy-access, family-friendly environment.
