My son and I like to use watercolors together sometimes. Its a good opportunity for us both to do something fun together. I love watercolors mainly because clean up is easy, and the commitment is small and there is little chance I can ruin my brushes. I like the way it looks, too- but I'm really practical these days. I suppose you could do this same project with finger paints or something, but I'm not down with cups of open paint EVER - if my son doesn't knock it over, I will. Watercolors are way more simple, all the way around.
Last winter we sat down at the table for painting togetherness and I decided it was a good opportunity to help him practice his letters:
I wrote the letters with pencil:
- ▼ 2014 (2)
- ► 2012 (34)
- ► 2011 (84)
