Don't be blue! I think this is the perfect time to post this project I did with toddlers ages 15-36 months last week at the OKCMOA. I don't know about you my friends but we are snowed in! I am determined not to let cabin fever bring us down and hopefully this little project will chase the blues away for you and your toddler.
We discovered the color blue in the galleries, taking a closer look at painterly abstraction pieces as well as minimalist works by Anne Truitt.
In the classroom we got busy with blue!
We began by rolling dark blue on our papers with brayers. You can buy inexpensive foam rollers at your local craft store. I recommend having some on hand!
Then we used a big feather to add light metallic blue.
We finished with white. I put snowflake foam stickers on floral blocks to create our own stamps.
They turned out quite nice and would look great under a nice white mat and framed to hang in your home all winter long.
You will need:
-Student grade watercolor paper
-Tempera paints: Dark blue, light blue (metallic if you can find it) and white
-Foam stickers for stamping
