Paint Pipette Exploration

Rose loves playing with these paint pipettes:

Paint Pipettes

Coloured water play, as well as paint is a hit. We used them last to create Moon Salt Art and the children who participated loved the squeeze action of the pipettes.

Here is the invitation:

The messy paint trays are a perfect fit for a 9 x 12″ piece of paper so we used one as a blank canvas.

Pipette action

The paint we used was a little thick as it had been sitting unused for many months. Adding a little water would have made the process easier for little fingers.

Pincer gripThis is a great strengthening action for the pincer grip.

Colour mixing with skinny sticks

A skinny craft stick was used to mix paints. This is not necessary, but fun and prepared Rose for the colour mixing which is about to occur.

Paper patting

Adding paper and firmly patting.

Final painting

We managed to get two prints from the paint. Beautiful!
