I love that the Unplugged Projects are so flexible!! This week's "assignment" was the Letter J. We painted this week "J"ust because I wanted to!My inspiration came from Heart of the Matter Online: Paint It Like Pollock.
Basically, I gave the boys a small wooden ball, some paint, and a piece of paper inside a box. They dipped the ball in paint, dropped it on the paper, and rolled the ball around inside the box.
Forgive the dim pictures; it was a bright and windy day. We were under the carport and the shadows were not very forgiving... :)
Step 1: Pose for mommy while you are all clean. Start with colors red, yellow, blue, and white.
Step 2: Dip the little ball in as many colors as possible. :)
Step 3: Shake the box to roll the ball around.
Step 4: Show off pretty picture.
Step 5: Continue to mix paint until mommy says it's time to stop.
The boys really enjoyed this. It was a beautiful day and we needed to do something outside!
