The book Action Jackson by Jan Greenberg
(or any info and photos about Jackson Pollack)
paint brushes, sponges, sticks
(Those older brushes that are stiff and hardly good for painting anymore are perfect)
(I used washed out play dough cups)
canvas, paper or wrapping paper
(I spread out wrapping paper white side up and used it)
I read the book to the boys.
We spread out canvas and wrapping paper onto the yard
(away from the house and cars)
I added a little bit of water to the cups of paint to make it easier to fling.
And then the kiddos flung it.
They wore their bathing suits because we knew they'd get paint on them.
Alex: I like making art.
Max: Look at me, I AM art!
When they were done, I said
"go for it."
And they did.
Oh, one more item needed.
