Carrying on with our focus on art with toddlers this month, late last week the hooligans each made a simple drawing project that requires only a white crayon and a dark piece of paper.
I gave everyone a small piece of black card-stock – some rectangles and some squares and they drew or wrote whatever they wanted on their paper.
A couple of the hooligans asked for paint when they finished their drawing, so I set out the tempera paints. I think the splash of colour against the black and white art is quite striking.
And because we’re on a mission to get some hooligan-made art up on our walls, I double matted each drawing, by first gluing it to a piece of white card-stock, and then to a piece of coloured card-stock.
I think they look like a million bucks! More art for our playroom walls!
