Then 'A' accidentally dipped his hand into the cup (empty yogurt cups) and felt the paint. He let go of his brush and started using his fingers! So I took his coloring page from him, poured the remaining paint onto the large paper covering the tables, and let him fingerpaint!
I let them mix the colors, smell their hands and well yeah, even taste the paint (it smelled too good!)
They had a wonderful time! This activity encouraged peer interaction too!
As I was watching them giggle and smile, I couldn't resist joining in. I had fun too by the way (and had paint all over my camera!)
