Paint Play




This morning we got out water colors and I showed Caedmon how to draw a picture with white crayon and paint over it - the wax creates a barrier and the drawing "magically" appears. I had also set some items on the table for inspiration - including some pine branches. We decided to try those out as paint brushes and that was super fun! We also tried some Cedar but that just fell apart. 

I use a plastic tray that once held cookies for the paint and we try to match the colors of the brush handles to the colors of the paint. . . the tray has a lid so it's great for storage!

Ansel led me to the finger paint and he used one of the paint trays I found on ebay that has a raised pattern. We just dump colors in there and he spreads them around. A great sensory experience for him. We've also transferred the pattern to paper before, but he seems more interested in just mixing and spreading paint.
