Johnny has never really liked to finger paint. He’s not really a big fan of his hands (or feet) being dirty.
The other day, we brought out some paints and tried brushes this time. Major success!
“Not sure if I like this”
One of the first things he did was to paint a circle and say “that’s a O”. Brilliant!
We used a potato masher on a few. He loved banging it into the table.
Using multiple methods:
“What?? You’re looking at me like I have something on my face…”
“Just need a little more… Right….. there….”
Towards the end he was inspecting all of the paint that was on his hands. I figured I would try to sneak in some finger painting. So we squished his little hands down in the paint & he splatted his hands with gusto! Victory!
I love the way these turned out. I have several that I am framing to hang on the wall! Now any time he sees mama painting, he wants to be painting too.
