At the art table this morning I added scents to the paints.
Cinnamon was added to the brown.
Peppermint to the red paint.
And lemon was added to the yellow.
We used various cookie cutters like gingerbread men, clothing cutters
(pants, shirt, shoes, skirt, mitts, hats), and a house-shaped cutter.
As the children began to paint they wanted to add more details.
So using qtips and a small sponge dabber they were able to decorate
facial features and house decor.
Grown ups and children shared their paintings.
Counting how many are in the house.
Adding Christmas lights on the house.
Making a gingerbread dance.
And so much more.
The more the paint was used the stronger the scent became.
I wonder if when they’re dry, if we scratch them will they still smell?
We’ll have to try that tomorrow.
