We also painting sticks last week. Why, you ask? Because we can! Painting on paper gets kinda boring after a while, so we decided to gather up some sticks outside in the dump truck:
Then we used all these different colors to paint. We talked about the colors as we painted.
He used fine motor and hand eye coordination to paint the sticks.
It was kinda hard to get the stick to hold still while he was trying to paint it, so he decided to pick it up and dip it in the paint.
The brush we used was a little too long for him to handle. (I have since bought more kid-friendly brushes)
Eventually he gave up the brush altogether and the sticks and went to painting himself.
See, look what I did!
Here are our finished sticks before they dried. I helped him finish up painting them.
Here is the finished product after they dried. If you have any ideas on what we can do with them now, please comment!
