Painting with Chopsticks
We turned our eating utensils into paint brushes today. I gave Red a pair of chopsticks and a plastic fork and let him experiment with them in the paint.
He enjoyed playing around with both of them, although I did have to stay on him about not putting them in his mouth.
They left fun lines in the paint, especially the fork.
He wasn’t sure he wanted to paint at first, but when I showed him the ‘paint brushes,’ he changed his mind. I love how different materials can turn an ordinary painting into something brand new.
