Drawing with Paint

 Drawing with Paint is a fun activity for your little artist!

Painting is one of my kids’ favorite past times!  Drawing comes in at a close second.  Even L (age 2) has been drawing a lot lately-little squiggles that he imagines to be the big bad wolf or a picture of his Daddy.   This week I combined two of his favorites. After painting with his brush and hands, I taught L how to draw with the back of his paintbrush.

This activity is great for fine motor development, as well as creative thinking. You can also use a coffee stirrer or Popsicle stick.

    I don’t know how I have never thought of using the other end of the brush before… I usually use another tool to get the same effect on my own paintings, but the less amoutn of tools to clean the better 🙂
