The theme for open-ended art this week was yellow and prints. Check it out here.
I’ve been wanting to do some circle prints lately, with all the lids we’ve collected (since I’ve started doing creative stuff with M I can’t seem to throw anything away!), so I set it out yesterday morning. M wanted blue paint too, and since it’s his art, I complied:
I had some lids and some old spools too. He was really interested in the spools. He yelled, “look Mommy, steering wheels!” Sure enough:
He worked on this for a while, and he did notice that blue and yellow mixed together make green. I know we’ve gone over that before, but this time he noticed it and mentioned it on his own.
He started playing around with the paint right on the saucer, and I don’t remember his exact words, but I finally realized he wanted me to notice the designs he made on the saucers, and to hang them on the wall (we have one decorative plate on the wall, and I guess that gave him the idea). We got some paper and pressed them onto the saucers, and made prints of his “designs”:
(I know the masking tape holding up all his artwork in our house is just sooo elegant, isn’t it?)
Here’s the final product:
Have a beautiful day! :)
