What do you do when it is school holidays, but it is cold and wet outside, and your sister is sick, and you’ve had to cancel a play date, and you are Bored (with a capitol B)?
You hassle your mother, that’s what you do. You hassle, and moan, and say ‘but that’s boring’ to every suggestion until she says ‘do you want to do some finger painting?’.
Yes! That’s what you do!
We were finger painting primarily for the sensory experience rather than to make art, so I only added a little colour. If you wanted to make prints from your finger painting you’d need to add more pigment to make the colours print brighter.
We chose red and blue and covered the table in a sheet of plastic so we could work right on the table top. There was mixing, swirling, poking, hand printing, squelching, slapping, smooshing and lots of fun.
