Olivia Style Painting

We started our Olivia lapbook yesterday and one of the projects I wanted to try was splatter painting. Chloe thoroughly enjoyed splatter painting. I think it imperative to mention here that I am not one of those mothers who abhors messes. While I keep a fairly clean house (one could say "neat freak"), I do believe that children should be able to fully experience things...like splatter painting...to their capacity. This is why there is such a huge market for washable paints. They WASH! I am all for making messes, as long as they are cleanable.

With that being said, I set up the supplies and watched her splatter to her hearts content.



Today we will try another painting technique. I'll have to tell you about it later.
