We love painting with watercolors in preschool, so we decided to explore them a bit more by freezing the paint and working with it while thawing…
Awhile back, Discount School Supply gave me a big box of their products to try. I was most intrigued with the confetti paint, which we used for our birthday bulletin board signs.
Teacher Susan decided to thin it with water.
And place it in the freezer overnight.
The following day she placed the frozen paint on the art table.
Each color has a different size/shape of confetti, but the blue paint’s confetti looks like glitter.
The children were invited to work with the frozen paint as it was thawing.
A science experiment at the art table, working with the slushy paint as it melted.
The next day, Teacher Susan used our acrylic page holders as mini-easels.
The confetti paint is too thick out of the jar to use with pipettes, but once thinned with water, it works beautifully.
You can still see the glitter as the paint is dripped on the paper.
Process art. Science. Fine motor. Fun!
