This fun and simple project lets preschoolers create unique masterpieces that look fabulous in a frame or simply hung on the wall. It also works well for older toddlers and younger school age children!
Giver your child a piece of black card-stock and let him choose several colors of tempera paint. If your child is prone to mixing all the colors into a lovely shade of brown, limit his palette to two colors. You can either let him transfer the paint from a palette to his page with a paintbrush, or you can place 4-5 drops of paint directly on his card-stock and let him paint the page. Design and pattern are completely up to your child's genius!
Note: Tempera paint works well for this because it tends to sit on the card-stock, unlike water-colors which tend to be absorbed by the paper. You can buy washable temperas too.
