A couple of days ago, Deborah from Teach Preschool wrote a post showing how they painted rainbows with sponges. I decided to try it on our easel.
I was so excited to get to use my new squeeze bottles that I had purchased at the restaurant supply store! (You can also get them at craft stores.)
I squeezed the colors in rainbow order on the sponge.
And loved the result! Yes, if my desire was for it to look just like a rainbow, I would've pulled the paper off the easel right then. But I didn't. I knew they wanted to experience more. And they did.
What thrilled them most was watching the colors blend as they moved the sponge in all directions all over the paper. Many were not finished until the entire sheet was covered. One of the 3's covered 5 sheets of paper, delighted with each one.
And so, today I decided to try it with the 2's.....
Sort of looks like a rainbow behind some dark clouds!
Oh, but the fun they had, moving all over the paper, mixing all the colors.
