As she painted with brushes and rollers, she gave a running commentary. This piece is a safari with a cheetah with spots. It's quite the vibrant safari don't you think?
When we were done with easel painting, we moved onto bubble painting - T2 has never done this and it has been quite some time since I have. It was fun and luckily more paint was blown than swallowed!
2tsp clear liquid dish detergent
1/4 c powdered tempera paint
Mix in bowls, add straws and blow, blow, blow. When the bubbles are raised above side of bowls, gently rest a piece of paper on top and when you lift it off, you should have a cool bubble pattern on your paper. I forgot to take a picture of the finished result.
We finished off the morning by doing some magic crayon pictures. Following my lead, T2 did a crayon design on her piece of paper.
After completing our crayon designs, we did a colour wash with blue water colour paint. T2 was quite excited to see the design showing through the paint.
We had so much fun - yeah the laundry is piling up and the beds are unmade but I'll get to those at naptime.
The painty clean up was pretty easy today - hand washing, table wiping, picture hanging and this
