Q-Tip Tree Painting

We spent some time in the morning admiring the changing colors on the trees. 'Lots and lots of little dots' is what my art history teacher would say over and over whenever discussing pointillism. I might have mentioned it a few times during art time, today.

It was our first try at q-tip painting. And what a big hit. The girls loved it. While not exactly earth friendly (non of the q-tips can be washed and reused) they are much easier for little hands to control and quite a bit neater than the regular foam brushes. Also, super inexpensive- so little ones can use 10 or 20 on one project and it isn't a big deal.
