Here is another treasure from the backfiles.
This started as an act of desperation on my part, I just needed her to be occupied so I could finish something, but it quickly became one of her favorite activities.
If you have a chalkboard (we made ours on a half wall with chalkboard paint), all you need is a paintbrush, sponge, or washcloth, and a cup of water.
Dip the brush in the water and have at it!
Kit LOVES how the water turns the board black. So often, she will be at this so long that by the time she gets across the board, the first area she painted will be dry and a fresh pallet once again.
You can get creative with the things you use as paintbrushes, but she has been completely happy with our basic art brushes from Walmart.
I love watching her do this.
