resistart A variation on the old crayon favorite!

Goals:

  • To encourage social skills and cooperation
  • To develop fine motor skills and encourage creativity

Before You Start: Gather materials needed: BioColor® paint, sulfite paper, paintbrushes and paint scrapers.

Let's Get Started! Step 1. A project for two children to do together; great for social and fine motor skills.

Step 2. Give each child two different colors of BioColor®.

Step 3. Cover a sheet of paper with dime-sized dots.

Step 4. Place another clean sheet of paper on top and rub lightly – remove top sheet. Each child now has their own painting.

Step 5. Cover wet painting with black BioColor® (or another dark color) using a brush.

Step 6. While wet, have children scrape out a design or picture using a plastic paint scraper.

Furthermore: This is a great open-ended project that allows children to experiment with different color combinations and be creative with their designs.
