It's Playtime: Paint, Paint, Paint

This week is all about paint! Painting with preschoolers is creative, messy, and all about exploration: exploration of techniques, materials, and colors.  So grab a smock or strip down to your skivvies and check out all the painting fun!

Michael has enjoyed painting with Q-tips...
and rollers

But painting fun doesn't stop there!  At last weeks It's Playtime inspiration came in many forms for these young friends...
  Putti explored Salt Paintings using glue, salt, and foodcolors at Putti Prapancha.  She even made a lovely card for her mom!  

Over at Play Create Explore, this little one enjoyed Berry Painting.  A perfect idea for babies and toddlers because the paint is edible!  

Another toddler painting idea came from An Amazing Child where "J" enjoyed Spray Bottle Painting.  Fantastic, messy fun!    

Housing a Forest gave Pour Painting a try and the result is simply beautiful!
