We started off with the paint activities. They were supposed to use the brushes at the easel, but that lasted about three minutes with Grace. She quickly ditched the brushes because as everyone knows, your hands make way better paint brushes.
Abby disagrees with Grace about the whole paint with your hands philosophy. She is very nicely using her brush and if any paint gets on her she quickly asks me to wash and dry her hands off.
Onto the shaving cream activity. Most kids were rubbing it all over their arms and faces. This station didn't really interest Grace andAbby. They visited for a couple of minutes, wiped their hands down, and moved on.
We moved on to paint with cars. This was fun. The educator made a picture for each of the girls and then they drove a car through the paint. Grace asked for a flower. Easy peasy, even I can draw a flower.
And then there's Abby. Abby wanted an elephant. I think the educator was a little surprised by this request, but she drew Abby the best elephant she could. Abby was very pleased with how her elephant turned out.
Back to the paint.
As you can see, Abby never really got into painting with her hands. Too messy!
