Spatter Painting

When R came home from a trip this week, this sign greeted him at the door.  My mother was also visiting this week and came up with the idea.  She:

1.  Printed large outline letters off the computer and cut them out.
2.  Lightly glue sticked each letter onto a blank piece of cardstock.
3.  Had the girls spatter paint with tempera paint all over each piece of cardstock.  She had them use a toothbrush on a screen, but we found it actually worked better to just flick the paint covered toothbrush with one's thumb. 

( G tried to use the toothbrush to brush her teeth before we got to her. She's quick!)
