Allow me to clearly confess two things as I dive into “Art Adventures” with my toddler: first, I am not an artist. I never took an art class, not one; second, I do not love a mess.
So we started art week slowly. I put some finger paint inside a ziploc bag and taped it to the window.
And then I encouraged Cole to climb on up and “paint” with his fingers. He was hesitant. This child goes to “school” two times a week, and he has finger-painted before. He thought I was limiting him, I could see it.
He took one finger and tentatively began to “paint.”
And then he really began to move the paint around.
It was so fun I added more baggies.
Cole stayed and played by the windows the rest of the night.
