Young children need lots of time to figure out how art materials, and their own muscles, work. Encourage their creativity and experimentation!
Wear clothes that can get messy. Cover your work area with recycled newspaper. With Crayola® So Big® Brushes and Crayola Washable Kid's Paints, experiment with different colors and ways to apply paint to paper.
Try different moves with your paint brush--push, drag, twist, and roll it. Spread out the bristles or paint with just the tip. Try using a lot of paint and just a little.
Mix colors in a recycled foam produce tray or on your paper as you paint. What colors can you make? Add different amounts of each color to see how colors change. Dry.
