Painting is one of our most requested activities. Our toddlers will paint many times during the day. Our painting supplies are within their reach except, for the water – that we provide when they ask for it. I know it would be nice to have it readily available but, we have found that having spills can be avoided ….sometimes. For this activity, I glued some bows to some watercolor paper. These paper were cut in smaller pieces, we also provide lots of cardboard for painting on.
Materials needed: Watercolor paints, brush, and water.
Have watercolor pad, water, and brush for each child.
Here a toddler made art for her mom. She made a purple castle for her family and dogs. The dogs were painted in yellow. Each brush stroke usually has a beautiful story.
The purple painting on left is the finished work of the picture above. The castle and all the contents blended into her favorite color… purple.
As the week continued the preschoolers and school-age children made gifts for their parents and friends.
