This is some painting Maia and her friend Marlise did earlier this week. When Marlise is over I usually have a low-key project set up for when they seem to need a break from just playing with each other. This week I set out two sheets of black poster board, a cup of white paint, and a couple of brushes.
Maia drew a bunch of white dots on her paper, then connected them, first saying she was doing a dot-to-dot then saying she was making constellations.
They both added some googly eyes and silver sequins.
Marlise was inspired to try dots as well. I loved seeing what they did with the white paint on black paper. We haven’t tried any paper other than white before this. Poster board comes in all different colors, as does construction paper, of course. I’m looking forward to trying some new colors.
