I kicked off the new Toddler Time Classes last week, one of the new opportunities at Homegrown Friends Classes in West Hartford, CT. So much fun! I love toddlers. Everything is new and exciting and their energy is contagious! The kids had a blast in our Twinkly Light Cave, exploring the orange scented playdough, painting wood slices and creating a Collaborative Toddler Watercolor Painting. Check out the amazing results.

HOW TO MAKE THE COLLABORATIVE TODDLER WATERCOLOR PAINTING
Prior to introducing the painting activity I attached a drop cloth on one of the art studio walls. I used small nails, but you could also use strong tape. I diluted the liquid watercolors and put them in the plastic paint containers. Now the fun begins. I placed the paint containers under the drop cloth and let the children discover the invitation to paint. At first they were hesitant to begin with just a few brush strokes. I loved their initial smiles as they watch their bright paint strokes move across the white cloth.
I loved watching the children come back and forth between this activity adding brush strokes every few minutes. One of the best discoveries was watching the sun shine through the screen I attached the cloth to. So gorgeous!
Each time the toddlers added paint the process art became even more gorgeous. I can’t stop staring at this amazing work of art.
