Udder Painting

Tomorrow we have a field trip to a dairy farm and hopefully see how a cow is milked.
For the last two days at the art table we have been trying our hand at milking the cow painting.

I filled a rubber glove with paint and suspended it from a frame.  Poked a hole in a fingertip and put paper underneath.
At first the children and parents experimented with the glove.  How much do we squeeze to get the paint to come out?  Do we need to use both hands?

Ah success!

What fun to watch the stream of paint come out and land on the paper or the floor.

Today we tried balloons instead of rubber gloves but found that they didn't work as well.

Still a lot of fun.

And messy!

 Right to the last squeezed out drop.

Beautiful pieces of art.
