Colorful tabletop puddles with coffee filter lily pads...
Art Project: Absorb it! (project title from First Art by MaryAnn Kohl)
Rain / Kalan, Robert
Music to make art by:
Pickin' in the garden [sound recording] / The Funky Mamas
What Kids Do:
draw with washable markers onto coffee filters:
--markers will bleed through the coffee filters onto the tables. If that is a concern, cover your tables with something less porous.
Variations to try:--another option if coffee filters are difficult to come by for some reason would be sturdy white paper towels
--pinch the middle of a dried colored coffee filter and twist it into a flower!
Adult Challenge: Follow your child's lead. There are so many ways to explore these supplies. Let your child choose which way they'd like to proceed (although spraying other people with water should be discouraged unless those people WANT to be wet).
Best kid quote: "These look like wings! I'm going to put mine on and fly out the window and up into the morning!"
