Painting Kit for a Toddler

by Angela McClain
(Holden, MA)

MaryAnn,

This isn't a suggestion as much as it is a question for you. I would like to spend a little time with my godson's three-year-old daughter. The last time they visited, she and her grandfather "explored" my area of the family room...my desk, my computer. I was busy in the kitchen so I don't know if they got to my art table.

Next time they visit, I am ordering pizza and be able to spend some quality time with the children. I would like to introduce her to watercolor. Do you have any suggestions on a small project that I could do with her? I thought that I would then pack up a little "kit" for her to take home with "real" watercolor paints, a couple of brushes and some real watercolor paper.

Five little painters
by: Lynne

I have five granddaughters from 4 to 10 years old. They all love to paint at my house. I have set up a very large table and aprons and set out lots of paint and paper for them to use. Sometimes I show them photographs of flowers or a beach for inspiration and it is amazing what they can do. I have a fish tank nearby and they will often paint that also. I help them achieve their goal with some suggestions but I let them know that they can't make a mistake. I keep lots of old frames in the house and sometimes we will frame their work to take home. Today we are doing Xmas cards! I give them folded stock to work on. When the girls were three, I would give them just a few colors and let them do what they want. Usually they would just slosh it about and mix colors right on the paper. Remember, they can't make a mistake; they are learning!

Don't expect much

I just tried it with my 4 yearold Gdaughter. Clear away your paints. Limit her to primary colors and just let her try the different mixtures. Then let her explore what she wants to do. Later you can try a simple lesson. Google ideas. Enjoy. Barb
