What we used:
paints given to us by craftprojectideas.com
white and black paper
We started out by reading the book for inspiration. Then we started creating our paintings.
The kids dipped the pencils in the paint. I tried to get them to use one pencil per color. I also laid a paper towel out for them to place the pencils on when not using.
We created several different paintings inspired by this book. This was a great time to go over colors and patterns. Also , we counted the dots while we painted. We hope you can enjoy this idea too.
