We were just going to be painting on Friday, but after painting a couple large sheets of paper Rebecca spontaneously started painting the table and taking prints off it. Finger painting, splatter painting, taking prints, I love that she’s so comfortable with paint and has so many techniques she can pull out when she feels like it.
It was a really productive morning too, Rebecca ended up with 10 prints and paintings, and Felicity had at least 6-8. It’s always nice when they want to spend time with the art materials rather than giving them a cursory touch and then running off to find the tricycles.
Also, I used a leftover mini muffin tin for the paint, 24 little compartments to fill up with whatever colors they wanted, that was a hit too, and seemed to work a little better than the ice cube trays we’ve used in the past. They aren’t as deep, and they’re apparently the perfect size for squeezing your hand into.
