We tried some finger painting last night. Nadia started out with just dabbing paint on paper. She always wants me to join in her crafts so she suggested that I draw something and then she would paint around it. So I drew a tree and she colored it brown. She then proceeded to use red and yellow to create an autumn scene.
Here are a few close-ups.
You can tell by that big smile, she is enjoying this very much.
I am quite impressed by how well this turned out. This one is going on my office wall.
I think we will do more finger painting over the weekend. There is something about getting the paint all over your hands that excite children a lot. Very easy to motivate a painting out of them.
Have a great weekend.
