  • Coffee Filters and Watercolor Paint in Open Book, Open Play | Carle Museum
    two coffee filters nested together and a paintbrush deli cups with water and palettes of watercolor paint Typically with toddler and preschooler groups we offer tempera cakes in primary colors because of their large size but on this day we knew that the range of colors type of pigment in the palettes and smallish brushes would work well with the size and bleedability of the coffee filters Without any further prompting from Emily about what to make the toddlers preschoolers a couple of school aged children and a few of the parents began to experiment with the water paint and coffee filters Some played with the materials without verbalizing their thoughts Many liked using the black watercolor paint to cover other colors they put on their paper first Some just liked getting their filter wet with water A few noticed that they had two filters on their tray and experimented with ways to stack their filters One girl remarked The white is my eraser paint upon noticing how adding white to her paper effected the colors she had already painted When the children were ready for another painting surface we offered them a piece of watercolor paper we had already cut into a circle Upon seeing this new paper being handed out one girl said I ll take a plate to go under my bowl Never did Emily or I call the materials plates or bowls She made the connection on her own We wanted to share this Open Book Open Play exploration because we think it s a great example of how we use a theme in an open ended way Working off a theme is not always how we select our books for storytime or materials for young children but in this case it was an organizing force that allowed conversation about how artists use materials and tell stories For some children it provided a spark they used in their materials exploration Comments and questions shared by the children whether they seem on or off topic to us adults emerge and are allowed to help shape the conversation In many instances our guests have found connective threads between books and explorations that we educators or parents may not have seen We hope you are inspired by some part of this Open Book Open Play exploration Maybe you ll remember the books or materials we offered the next time your young child shows interest in the colors of your produce Or maybe after painting together you ll be inspired to make a fruit salad inspired by your paint colors We think you ll find even more possibilities as you listen to the questions and interests of the young children in your life Happy Exploring by Meghan Burch Tags Open Book Open Play watercolor coffee filters storytime The Watermelon Seed Eating the Alphabet Orange Pear Apple Bear This entry was posted on Monday February 8th 2016 at 9 00 am and is filed under Special Events Infants and Toddlers Painting
