We did tape resist watercolor paintings 2 days in a row, and they really loved it...especially O. We started by making their initials on cardstock using painters tape.
O(6) didn't like the O that I made, so she made her own.
We used homemade watercolors on the first day (that's another post that I'll write eventually).
E(3) was VERY happy with her E!
O(6) was a little disappointed with her O, but I love it!
On the 2nd day, O decided to paint a landscape and a house. We used our liquid watercolors, and they were much better than our homemade watercolors.
Things got a little dicey when she was removing the tape because the paper tore a little. Luckily, she was able to control her tears and found a way to make it all ok. Phew! (Lately, we've been talking a lot about handling our emotions in the face of disappointment...it's tough to be 6 and 3!)
