We’ve been creating a lot of different art related to the ocean
It’s time to create a bulletin board.
Today we painted a group mural for the bulletin board background.
The table was covered with one big piece of paper.
The children were encouraged to spoon paint on to the paper.
We then covered the paint with plastic wrap and smooshed it together.
The child in these pictures is quite familiar with painting with her fingers
(her mom let’s her fully enjoy the art area) but when we placed the plastic
wrap on top of the paint she was clearly unsure what to do. She carefully
poked and pinched at the wrap exploring the new experience.
Others enjoyed the sensation of the smooth cool plastic on the paint.
Picked it up, checked out the new colours mixing and then placed
it on a new spot to smoosh some more.
It looks like whitecaps of waves crashing on a windy day.
