Let Them Paint

Let them paint...
 Let fingers become paintbrushes that set the landscape for a garden of hearts.
Let them set the foundation for their curiosity and discover what they know.
Let them feel soft, wet, cool bristles.
Let them incorporate loose materials into their painting ideas.
Let them have no purpose other than to discover colour, shades and hues.
Let them paint found items and make them into their idea of beautiful.
Let them take the time to wash and rewash their hands as they carry out their thinking...and then add antennas.
Let them inspire friends and collaborate.
Let them show you how they feel about their world.
Let them discover that old markers and water can provide enough colour to make a splash!
Let them be so excited that one hand and one brush is just not enough!
Let them paint!
Let them paint!
Let them paint!
Let them paint!
