I was inspired by Deborah's Simple Fall Leaf Finger Painting post at Teach Preschool.
Aren't these pretty?
And so, I tried it last week! The preschoolers loved it SO much that I could not get the wax paper on the trays fast enough. I think I broke out in a sweat trying to keep up!
I cut wax paper into squares and gave each preschooler one with a bottle of paint to squeeze. Next time I think I'll be the one to squeeze the paint on it, though! That, or I need to find bottles that are slow to release paint! After putting a few different colors on the paper, I put another sheet of wax paper on top. The preschoolers smoothed the paint with their hands. Some were reluctant until they realized they wouldn't be getting their hands in paint. (Some still managed because theirs oozed out the sides.) I will definitely do this again. I can't wait to cut them and hang in the window. Thanks, Deborah!
