Experiment With Oil, Acrylic, and Water-Based Paints
Purchase a set of oil, acrylic, and water-based paints. Hunt around the house for various canvases: newsprint, printer paper, or cardboard. Take turns brushing colors on each canvas, noting the differences in texture and beauty. When the canvases dry, instruct your child to trace her handprints onto each, cut them out and mount them inside a shadow box or frame!
