I love washable finger paints, and it’s not just because they easily wash out of clothing…there is something seductive about their lack of permanence that gives everyone permission to play.
My grandson is always doing art at daycare, but he knows that at Grammy’s studio we roll out large pieces of white paper, give him tubes of paint, and find “really big” brushes. Lately, I have also given him “mark making tools” like plastic florist sticks and old membership cards. He is particularly fond of the florist sticks for the marks they leave in the liquid colors.
This is not only good for his soul, but also for mine. Happy spring!
