Tobin was pretty restless last Friday and couldn’t stick with any one activity for more than five minutes. He sort of wanted to paint, but I knew he would not be able to focus on anything that took too terribly long. I came up with this little project when I ran across a couple of Halloween cookie cutters sitting in the utensil drawer. I can’t remember the last time we had even used these cookie cutters for anything. I didn’t even remember having these particular ones!
We kept it simple by sticking with black paint on orange construction paper and white paint on black construction paper.
I was really happy that I was able to get to Tobin to draw the facial features for his pumpkins and ghosts by himself. He doesn’t like to write or draw much, but he’s been taking more frequent baby steps toward it.
Steve sometimes acts like he’s too old to join us for art anymore, but he always gets sucked in eventually.
Steve showed some creativity when he decided the lid to our paintbrush tin would make an excellent fall moon.
For some reason all the ghost prints reminded Steve of the Pac-Man game, so he wanted to create some Pac-Man themed art. Perhaps someone has been playing too much Atari?
Tobin was very excited when our artwork was all dry, and I taped it up around the dining room. He loves when we decorate.
I somehow missed the cat cookie cutter when I was rummaging through the kitchen drawers Friday afternoon, but I discovered him over the weekend. Maybe black cookie cutter cats will appear in our next art project?
