We painted during our creative art time today, but instead of fingerpainting or using a brush, I let L experiment with homemade paintbrushes. Just a few things I had laying around the house, or have collected for our creative arts cabinet that I knew would create cool and different textures. Each object added a suprise to his painting experience.
Here's what I found:
Cotton ball, piece of loofa, new dish scrubber, makeup sponge, feather, and a waffle!
I then taped a big piece of paper to L's art table and let him experiement with each one one by one with a different color for each object.
The finished product
L REALLY loved doing this...especially using the waffle!
We'll be doing this again soon, and i'm already thinking of our next homemade paintbrushes!
pine branches with the needles still attached
socks on his hands
small inflated balloons
