From tracing around bodies and feeling tickled to experiencing the size of ones body and just how much paint it takes to paint it. The children really loved being traced and then painting themselves. Such a simple project really and yet so very rewarding especially when you stand back and look at everyone.
We used simple materials for this project. Recycled drafting paper, markers, and tempera paint.
The children applied acrylic paints with flowers. They absolutely loved pressing the flowers into the paint and then stamping their water colour painting. the effect was really quite stunning.
