Big Painting

My latest order from Lakeshore arrived with several large, crumpled sheets of paper. The girls are using the paper to make these wonderful murals. Painting on such a large surface is a new experience for my girls who have had many opportunities to paint at the easel. Julia loves the freedom of painting outside. She has been exploring splatter painting and making prints with different body parts.


  1. This looks like so much fun! I bet the girls had a great time. I love how intense they look.

  2. There's something special about painting outside. I love the freedom that comes from working with those large sheets of paper.

    The watermelon math mats are such a great idea. Such a great visual and kinesthetic learning tool.


  3. So fun! I love painting 'al fresco'!!
