For her birthday, the girl got a cool set of dinosaurs to paint. We spent the morning after her party painting them (she let me do one; isn’t that sweet?) and kept coming back to the paint through the day.
She painted some on paper, but she really wanted to paint something else that wasn’t paper.
She has lately been interested in covering the whole piece of paper (or cardboard), which I love. I thought it would be fun to see if we could make a print with it, but the paint dried really fast and didn’t leave much of a mark.
Still, it was a lot of fun for her to use a different medium to paint on.
So much so that she found a piece of paperboard on the floor a couple of days later and wanted to paint it, too. Proof that you should never throw away anything when you have a little artist in your house.
What has your little one been making lately? I’d love to hear about it!
