This week at the art center we:
- Rolled and stamped blue saltdough and mashed it into plastic easter eggs
- Stamped with Peeps using puffy paint made from equal parts shaving cream and glue
- Enjoyed a Megasized “Marble” roll with plastic easter eggs
- Swirled paint to marbelize water bottles
One little artist decided to mix media, first she used the leftover paint from the marble activity to print on her paper, then she stamped with peeps, finally she found a pair of scissors and cut pieces of paper to stick to her masterpiece. Providing open ended activities and remaining flexible with our expectations can allow little artists to grow as independent thinkers.
