We painted our bathroom recently, and when I was finished with the mini paint roller I knew just what I wanted to do with it.
We coated some cardboard with aluminum foil and made palettes, and then I squirted various colors of tempera paint for the kids to roll — sometimes onto paper plates and sometimes right onto the “canvas.”
Alex loved it. There was color mixing, mushing, and plain old messy fun.
Jack and Anna loved it too, especially with Q-tips to draw on the palettes.
Jack even took the opportunity to practice his cursive, tracing and copying his name after I wrote it out for him.
I highly recommend it! Even if you don’t paint your bathroom first. 🙂
