A rainy day called for an indoor messy experience. Setting up some paints and a big empty canvas on the floor had the children curious and inquisitive. Donning some old clothes we were ready to get creative!

Although the children started on the paper they had the freedom to be able to move around and it wasn’t long before they started exploring the paint on their bodies.  This experience allowed for the children to use their senses, touching, feeling, seeing, listening to each others joy, and even a teeny weeny taste that assured them it wasn’t really worth eating.  Even the clean up was an enjoyable experience with each child having one on one with the teachers as they went to the bathroom for a wash-down!
