Water paint paper anyway your kiddo (or you) wish
We used regular kid paint and water in a bowl to water it down for a brighter effect.
We also used watercolor paper, which turns out better, but regular paper works fine too.
Painting and snacking on nuts....
OK, mine is the middle one, I admit, I love Art.
I always wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher, because of the Art!!
(my first grader also loves these projects though....)
The top row is an example of an Art project gone bad, but turned out OK in the end.
I planned on the girls using Elmer's Glue to outline fall leaves,
which they did,
the next step, after it dried
was to water paint in between the dried glue part.
while I chased after my 2 year old busy body...
(gone for literally 2 minutes)
They had gotten out the glitter and
it was everywhere
and filled in the glue.
It turned out pretty anyway and we never did do it the way I had planned!
