Toe painting is a fun and messy way to create a wonderful piece of process art.
When the nice weather hits, we head outdoors. Our days are spent playing in the yard, going on hikes and creating art. Warm weather means that we can start getting messy with the paint and chalk. We love to bring our craft roll (affiliate link) outside and lay it on the driveway and paint in the sun. It all started rather normally. We gathered our paints and brushes and went outside. One of the paint brushes started to roll down our driveway. I stopped it with my foot and grabbed it with my toes and then ding ding ding, we decided to get a little silly.
I sat on the ground next to our paper and put the brush between my toes and showed my daughter. “Mama, what are you doing?”
At first, she thought it was weird and she picked up her brush and painted with her hand next to me, but after a few minutes she asked, “Can I try?” My daughter sat on the curb and placed a brush between her toes too. She dipped it in the paint and said that she was going to try to make a bow. She made her bow and laughed. “Look at my silly bow.”
We painting with one foot, we painted with brushes using both feet.
My daughter wanted to make a game out of it too. She asked me to follow her lead as she tapped the brush, made zig zags with the brush and stood up and dragged the brush as she walked.
She even used one foot to paint the nails on her other foot.
We challenged ourselves to try to make different shapes and even paint our names with our feet. There was a lot of giggling and dropped brushes, but a whole lot of fun.
