"Scrubber" Prints!

We have been having a ton of fun reading the book "Mrs. Wishy Washy" and "Splishy Sploshy" (both by Joy Cowley).  We've also listened to the song "The Wishy Washy Washerwoman" (on Baloney by Carol Peterson)!

After spending last week exploring scrubbers and sponges with soap and water to wash dishes and our animals; today we explored painting with the scrubbers!

We found very quickly that the round scrubbers made perfect round bubbled prints!  Depending on how much paint the child used and how much was previously on the scrubber, the circle was wide and bubbly or thin and perfectly symmetrical!

We also used bath "poufs" which didn't work quite as well for prints, but were lots of fun to scrub across the paper (or hands!)

Thank goodness we chose to tape large paper on the table!  Our scrubber circles were lots of fun, but they sure took up a lot of space!
