When it's the weekend, my daughter and I rejoice because we get to play messier and for longer periods of time compared to our after-work routine on weekdays.
Now that the rainy season has come again to Manila, it's time to try this fun art play again:
Pop out a few chosen water-colour shades from the el cheapo set, a "crusher", and mess-keeper bag.
Let the little one whack to her heart's content. Her patience lasted less than a minute. So typical.
|I think an adult and a rolling pin should finish the job - you'll see why later|
Now arrange the crushed colours in a tray:
|This should be ground into finer pieces - maybe with a mortar and pestle|
Bring outside! You can watch the rain make art, or you can leave it. If you choose to leave it though, don't use trays! We came back to a brown swimming pool.
|You can't see it much in these photos, but the fine grains left the best colour|
|Use food colouring! This post from Mama.Papa.Bubba inspired our own version.|
