Whenever you see this pencil, it is your turn to play!


In his studio at Giverny, painted huge pictures that became some of the most famous paintings ever made. His inspiration came from the magnificent garden he had planted and his pond full of water lilies. Now as he wandered in the garden and sat by the pond, Monet thought back to the many good times he’d had with his family in the big pink house at Giverny.

He could still hear the children’s laughter as they played hide and seek in the garden, and he remembered the fun they all had fishing in the river nearby.

Germaine, Suzanne, Blanche

Monet’s home at Giverny was full of colour and activity. Marguerite, the cook, made delicious meals in the big blue and white kitchen.

The family sat down to eat together in the bright yellow dining room. All the colours of the rainbow could be found outside in the garden. Monet loved living in the country. After he and his family moved to the big pink house in Giverny, Monet exclaimed, “I am in ecstasy. Giverny is a splendid place for me!”
