I recently got some water colors for DD, thinking maybe she could use them in her bath. But, she’s still in a kids tub, so we’ll probably have to wait a while for that. But, I figured out a way she could get started now. I think I got this idea from a great book I just finished called “Before Five in a Row.”
I sat DD in her booster seat at the table and gave her a tiny cup of water and a paint brush and a paper plate. No watercolors though. I showed her how to dip the paintbrush in the water and “paint” the paper plate. She loved it and did it for a long time.
Here’s step 1:
I didn’t get a picture of “step 3.” I started fixing dinner and caught DD drinking the water out of the little cup!!!! I’m just glad it didn’t have anything else in it, like the actual water colors!
