  • Fingerpainting with Toddlers: Debunking My Own Myths | Carle Museum
    tried were inexpensive and offered a nice sensory experience but proved not ideal for discovering how color works The color was faint texture chunky if cooked too much separated in the refrigerator and stained skin I was not impressed Then one day I saw pictures by my daughter and her classmates in the toddler room at daycare The colors were vivid with areas of lovely translucence and areas with intense saturated color There were areas where colors mixed and areas where they weren t Surprise surprise They were made with finger paint Sure other non toxic water based paints could be and have been used as finger paint but as we know toddlers can really get messy This is something I of course knew and experienced but didn t actually KNOW until I started painting with one in my OWN HOUSE With white walls Many of the teachers I ve worked with know that I m the last educator to choose paint for its washability Often the pigment in washable paints becomes pale when it dries I m generally a process over product person but I do want colors to be satisfying so I ve usually chosen non washable paints for my classes As a parent however I ve come to realize that washability in some of our home supplies allows me to relax and be in the moment with my kids Good quality finger paint grants many of my wishes So far I like Discount School Supply s Colorations Finger Paint but I would like to try Crayola s because I really like their tempera paint I m also willing to give this homemade recipe a whirl I m not excited about how finger paintings look when dry on finger paint paper so I ve been testing different kinds of paper Are there other brands of finger paint or types of paper you d recommend Any recipes you re happy with Happy finger painting by Meghan Burch Tags colorations crayola discount school supply finger paint homemade materials homemade paint paper This entry was posted on Friday November 2nd 2012 at 1 31 pm and is filed under By Meghan Burch Infants and Toddlers Painting Preschool Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions amy says February 12 2016 at 1 57pm Aluminum foil and the shiny side of freezer paper are both very satisfying surfaces on which to finger paint It s very process over product since it won t really dry well but you can try to take prints off them reply Lise says February 12 2016 at 1 57pm I like fingerpainting with Biocolor also from Discount School Supply which I also use for brush painting Avoid

    a couple of my favorite most inspiring versions kokokoKIDS Fall Leaves Craft Ideas Leaf Critters via Little Emma English Home Blog Leaf Alphabet via Martha Stewart com via Apartment Therapy At the end of the summer this year we did our own version of this activity with leaves and flowers collected from The Carle s grounds and a nearby farm We pressed them for a few days between sheets of tracing paper and corrugated cardboard under the weight of heavy books Students selected which leaves and flowers they wanted from the trays and used Aleene s Tacky Glue to attach them to pieces of white mat board When the covers were completely dry we made enough photocopies of each child s image so everyone would get to take home a book full of everyone s critters The next day we helped the students bind their books with the Stick and Rubber Band binding method We used a 2 hole punch sticks collected and trimmed and rubber bands to bind the books If you don t have the time to press leaves ahead of time we ve also created natural book covers with non pressed leaves and flowers and the outcomes were just as beautiful Let us know if you give this project a try or design your own version Follow The Carle s growing Pinterest Boards Bridging Art and Nature Making Art with Children Art Activities and Explorations and Programs and Events by Diana MacKenzie Tags autumn activities bridging art and nature fall activities leaf art leaf crafts leaves pinterest pressed leaves This entry was posted on Wednesday October 10th 2012 at 11 24 am and is filed under By Diana MacKenzie Classes Elementary School Infants and Toddlers Middle School Nature You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests and Artist Visits 34 Archive February 2016 1 January 2016 1 December 2015 4 November 2015 3 October 2015 2 September 2015 2 August 2015 4 July 2015 3 June 2015 3 May 2015 1 April 2015 2 March 2015 3 February 2015 4 January 2015 1 December 2014 2 November 2014 4
