doodlebugs flashback, 1.15.10, string painting

painting with string...a fun way to work with line, i thought. we read art, by patrick mcdonnell. a wonderful book about a little boy, art, who loves to draw and dream. perfect. it talked about lines that zig, zag, and really get wild.

well, our little artists got wild, too...never afraid to try anything. and once they discovered the paintbrushes i meant to hide, well...forget about that silly string.

they discovered what happens when you drive your finger through the paint...

what happens when you splatter the paint from your brush, and...

what happens when you fold the paper in the middle and squish the paint together.

one of my favorite moments: one of our little ones leading the big kids in her rendition of our "open shut them" song that gets us ready for story time. oh, the places these kids take us!
