Having kids at different ages and stages can sometimes be tricky, so I’m always thinking of ways to engage BOTH kiddos (age 6 and age 2) in fun ways. Pointillism rainbows met that requirement and was a great seasonal activity!
First, I drew (freehand… No teasing!) two pots on their papers. They colored them in.
Then, I poured a bit of red fingerprint on a plate and drew a pale red arc. They dipped their Q-Tip in the red paint, following the line, and dotting their way across!
After red, we followed up those steps with orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple!
But our rainbows needed some gold, too!
Each kiddo got a pen of gold glitter glue (Dollar Tree has awesome sets… for a DOLLAR!).
M was very deliberate while G…
Just loved squeezing the glitter.
This was such a fun, easy, and CHEAP project!
