Inspired by the videos of Aelita Andre splashing paint around with such awe and focus, I decided to let loose with finger paints for Isla and Asher. I stripped them to their skivvies and set up a space for them to play (next time, I’ll set up a little differently!). Blank pages, bowls of paint, no directions. They loved it. They would’ve kept going long after I threw in the towel (that gets back to my set-up!). Next, I took them outside and sprayed them down with the garden hose. They loved that, too.
