The kiddos painted with tempera paint yesterday for our Toddler Art Group meeting. Their paintings are hanging on the drying wall (above).
Here's Thalia painting
And here's Stella painting
Maia and I made marker holders as valentine's gifts for our Art Group friends. We found the project in MaryAnn F Kohl's First Art. I had seen and admired one that a friend had made and wanted to try it myself.
The marker holders are great because the tops can't get lost and it's easier for toddlers to keep the markers from drying out. They are simple to make. You're supposed to use an old metal flat-bottomed pan, such as a loaf pan. You'll mix and pour plaster of paris into the metal pan, then stick the marker tops (not the whole marker) halfway into the plaster and let it harden before putting the markers back in the tops.
