I put paint on paper plates so that we can use the plates tomorrow when we make our storybook pages and no paint was wasted! I then handed each boy a paint brush, paper, and some plastic forks. I also showed them that they could get a cool design if they pressed the painted paper in the grass (That led Miles to believe he could paint with the grass as a brush...). And then I walked away and checked in on them every so often. I wanted them to do what they thought looked best.
Tomorrow we are going to make cut outs and turn them into storybook pages!
