We had some fun with paint this morning. I had picked up a package of crafting feathers at the dollar store this week for a project I was planning on doing with the kids, and with the left overs we revisited a favourite way to create art.
Instead of painting with a paintbrush, use a feather. It gives different strokes than a brush, and it is a fun way to mix things up a bit.
One thing about feather painting though is that you can't easily rinse out the feather and use it in a different colour of paint, like you can with a brush. So you really need a feather per colour. I managed to find a craft feather in each colour of paint, which helped us remember which feather belonged in which pot and not get the paints all mixed up.
