Painting on Texture

We made reusable texture boards for painting using a variety of pasta, cotton balls, kidney beans and coffee beans. This project was inspired after my preschoolers painted over a collaborative collage. The coffee beans added a lovely olfactory experience!

Preschoolers help make the boards.

Cotton balls and pasta are all on my school supply list for the beginning of the school year. I acquired the card board from another teacher who was throwing it out. I am really about using as much recycled materails as possible. My preschoolers will repaint these boards over and over again. 

Ideas for the future: I want to try this with medium size boxes. Anything can be applied. I was thinking of using plastic lids next! I will post pictures with that experience.

Keep on keeping on!
