Back in December, Emma asked if she could paint some pistachio shells with toothpicks. So we got the materials together, and (with careful supervision) set to work.
It was a very serious matter for Emma, a learning experience for Johnny, and – for whatever reason – absolutely hilarious for Lily!
Once the shells were completed, the kids weren’t sure what to do with them, so they moved on to another activity…
Which Johnny chose to display in a most dramatic way!
The shells wound up in the trash, but they learned about texture, practiced fine motor skills, and had a lot of fun experimenting with new artistic media together!
