While Busy was working on her winter art project today, the Beans was dying to get involved! Instead of handing over a paint brush and a tub of paint, we sat on the floor next to sister's chair and did some water painting. Water is one of his favorite things to play with so I put down a piece of blue construction paper (yes the same blue construction paper that I have used a lot lately. I said I had a stack full!). I gave him a paint brush and a little water and showed him what to do.
He had to study it at first but then got to work.
And to be perfectly honest, he enjoyed painting the floor FAR more than staying on the paper :)
