Art Project: Soggy Chalk Drawings
--If the weather was nice, this project would work great outside on the sidewalk or on a large piece of wood spray painted with chalkboard paint.
--This is actually very closely related to the water painting on stones project from two weeks ago. i wondered if anyone would say, "didn't we just do this?" but if anything, the kids loved playing with the water as an art supply even more this time than last time. After all, repetition is key with this age group. They'd probably love it if I gave them paint, water, brushes and paper every week! (but the parents might get bored....)
Adult Challenge: Ask open-ended questions. Instead of asking your child if they'd like to make a blue mark here in the corner of their paper, ask, "what would you like to draw next?" or instead of asking them if they just drew a dog, ask them what their favorite part about the painting is.
