This letter of the week brought about a little art experiment. When I asked M and M if they wanted to paint with quarters they both shouted “NO”! It’s a pretty unusual thing for them to pass up painting of any kind, but we have done quite a bit of painting this week. It took me a few minutes but I came up with an alternative plan. It didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped, but it was a neat experiment anyway.
what you need: Letter Q ~ quarters ~ stamp pads ~ glue ~ sharpie
I glued the Q onto white paper and outlined it with a sharpie so it would show up better. I put the quarters, Q and stamp pads on the table. M and M dove right in. All I said was “Quarter starts with Q.”
The marks the quarters left were pretty faint, but our stamp pad is old. It worked much better after I added a little water.
Big M asked if I would put the quarters in with his stamps so he could use them again next time they stamp.
