Preschool Paint Project

This morning I had the boys do the whole painting with marbles thing while Baby Charlotte napped. You know, the project where you stick some paper in some sort of container, glob some paint in it and let the kid(s) roll marbles around in the paint to make tracks. Of course it turned into just regular fingerpainting, but the boys thought the marble thing was cool.

Simon & Jonas' artwork

This little project led to a conversation with Simon (the older) about what we could find outside to use to make tracks next time. Here are some things he thought we could use:

Rocks (stuck together with peanutbutter)

I'm not sure why the rocks must be stuck together with peanutbutter, but that's the way it has to be. (He said, "Peanutbutter is sticky!") And I really don't think we should use cake we find outside, but it's an interesting thought. He may have added a few other things, but I got lost in thinking of why we'd find cake outside.
