We mixed up the plaster of paris and poured it into these insect molds. We also saved Buddy's packaging which was a perfect turtle mold!
After they were dry (the next day), O decided who would get each one and then she painted them. She was adamant that she did NOT want to paint with brushes...ONLY fingers :)
Here are the finished insects! She said she may work on them a little more later :)
I am really excited by how much O has enjoyed painting these plaster of paris insects and animals. I think that a set of these would make a fun birthday gift along with a set of brushes and paints for a couple of friends with summer birthdays. We may also make a bunch of them to have as an art activity/party favor for O's 3rd birthday party in July :)
