A No-Mess Painting Technique

I’m at momtastic this week sharing my favorite new painting technique.  S and I picked it up at toddler group and it was a big hit.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still all for getting messy but it’s nice to have some tamer creative activities to draw from.
When I was plotting this project in my head I envisioned using paper cut into egg shapes to make some pretty Easter decor.  When it actually came down to it, everything was so spur of the moment that I couldn’t harness C’s excitement long enough to cut anything out.  I may still take scissors to the finished pieces though.  Head over to momtastic for the full tutorial (if it can really be called that) as well as the finished product.
