Turns out I am a big chicken. Back when we were doing our advent calendar, I had planned to do splatter painting with the book Is That You, Winter? It's a cute story with great illustrations. Old Man Winter wakes up crabby. After he does his job of spreading snow and cold, he wonders who he is going to all this trouble for. Then he stumbles and a little girl takes care of him. By the end of the book, he's happy knowing who is enjoying all his hard work. The art is all done in a messy splatter style that's a lot of fun to look at.
Instead of doing splatter painting, we took it outdoors and did a little spray painting instead. I mixed some finger paint with water, just enough to tint the water.
