Messy art!

Well, it started out not so messy.  Cinammon-scented playdoh.  Which was unfortunately consumed in quite large quantities by some of the crowd.  I figured that being 1/3 salt by weight might put them off from more than a nibble, but apparently not.  Don’t worry, it was homemade and entirely edible.  Also fun with sparkly necklaces:

Milo seemed to enjoy the full sensory experience:

And then, well, things got a little messier:

Our pendulum painting didn’t exactly turn out like the one we read about (Look at those patterns!: http://teachertomsblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/pendulum-painting.html).  It was more of a bouncing effect:

But still very cool:

And there were headscarves for busy artists, and of course some sponges to paint with (the theme was painting without paintbrushes):

And, um, fly swatters?

Don’t worry about the mess, Milo will take care of it:

Of course he painted too:

It was a busy, full table of painters:

But the most popular activity by far was painting with pasta:

Some people couldn’t resist a nibble.  We won’t name names:

Really, no idea why his lips are blue:

The concentration was pretty impressive:

Thanks again for hosting Carol!

    This looks like so much fun! Such brave parents to be willing to let the children get as messy as they’d like, too. Every child deserves a good messy art day 🙂 I love all of the ideas – especially painting with pasta and the pendulum painting.
