The other day when we got home (and it happened to be sunny) Monkey was running around picking dandelions. I suddenly remembered my friends and I rubbing dandelions on our faces to turn cheeks and chins yellow when we were kids.
So I invited him in to make some dandelion paintings. I just gave him a few sheets of white paper, showed him how to rub the flowers on the paper and let him at it.
He was having an "I don't want my picture taken" day, but I managed to sneak in a few shots.
Here is his finished artwork.
Cheap, quick, and fun.
Some good go along books.....
