Generous amounts of washable, nontoxic tempera paint + bare torsos + encouragement to paint their bodies =
I had set out special face crayons (the kind used on halloween or for face painting) as well but they were completely ignored. Paint was clearly the art material of choice yesterday. We used a bar of soap, the hose, and the kiddie pool for washing up afterwards.
By the way, I wanted to let you know that Teaching My Little Bookworm has started an Open-Ended Art Wednesday. Each week she’ll post an open-ended art project which you are encouraged to do with your kiddos and post about then add a link on her blog so others can see your work. This week it’s puffy paint, something we’ve had lots of fun with in the past!
