What to do with all those cardboard squares? Well, I laid them on our art table with some liquid watercolors and magic happened. Child A was painting on a cardboard square when I heard another child yell, “watch out! You are creating a huge puddle. Look at all the colors changing, I want to do that too.” Child A answered “you need to paint on the slick side up!” Everyone gathered around the table and before I could count to ten all the chairs was taken :)
I felt like I was in an assembly line, it kept coming and coming. We had squares drying all over the room. I grouped them together on a bigger cardboard square; the colors are so bright and happy.
They look like subway tiles.
Who would have thought that a shoe box could be repurposed twice to create such one of a kind art.
