Fast forward to this Monday. We went to Hobby Lobby, bought a canvas & paint brushes (this idea came from Jaymee! Thanks Jaymee) and he painted. Really well. I laid down the ground rules before hand and he followed them to a tee. Only paint on the canvas, Do not paint on the table, do not paint on yourself. Only paint on THE CANVAS. I didn't even care if he mixed colors! Which is a HUGE pet peeve of mine in kindergarten.Very focused
Notice his tongue. This is EXACTLY what Brian does when he is concentrating!
So today he asked to paint again. Why not? It went so well on Monday. I should have known! I always should know better, but I just don't listen to that inner voice. Maybe my inner voice should start yelling. We went over the rules again... Only paint on the paper, DO NOT paint on the table, DO NOT paint on youself. Only paint on THE PAPER! Those rules were for not.
Watch the kid in action. My favorite part is who he thinks is going to clean him up.
This from a kid who hates to be dirty! The only thing that makes me feel better about his newly found artistic abilities is that he is developing his fine motor skills and his sensory issues are getting better.
