It was my turn this past week to host the weekly playgroup that my 4-year-old Mina participates in. Spring flowers are finally in bloom, so it was the perfect chance to try out this clever art project I saw on Blog Me Mom. I quickly showed the kids how I could get some paint on the back of my fork and stamp it onto my paper to make a tulip shape. I handed them each a fork and a paintbrush (to paint on the stems) and let them have at it.
Each child's artwork was completely unique. I loved all the extra color and detail one of the girls decided to give her painting.
And in the end, what all 5 girls had really been dying to do was slather their hands in the wet paint. I had to hurry and grab a clean sheet of paper to stamp those handprints onto, or else those beautiful spring paintings would have been destroyed!
