“I need yellow paint for the pollen”
“Look, purple…red and blue paint!”
“Is there any green paint? I need green paint for the stem and leaves and grass!”
“Teacher Lana, I made brown!”
“I didn’t put out brown paint, where did the brown paint come from?”
“With all the colours…like this!” (rubbing hands together)
Painting offers a wide variety of experiences!! Not only is it fun…messy fun!! It also provides the opportunity for creativity, discovery, self-expression, fine motor (hand and finger) development and making connections from real life experiences and knowledge! Go ahead, get messy and paint!
