I tried something new with the 2's today. I stapled foil to construction paper and provided tempera paint with lots of soap added, and long-handled cotton swabs. (They were donated, so I haven't researched where these can be purchased.)
At first they gracefully glided the cotton swab across the foil, enjoying how smoothly they moved.
For some, this is as far as it got.
For others, the fingers started touching the paint...
...and the jars got "tipped" over.
Entire hands got involved, feeling the paint, moving the paint, going beyond the boundaries of the paper.
