I have set up a little corner of the kitchen where I put out art supplies almost every day. Right now I put out mostly paint, as it is what Sophia enjoys the most. She loves to squeeze the paint from a little bottle, and she loves to make hand prints. I put out just one color, as recommended by Susan Striker in her book Young at Art. I hope it will encourage Sophia’s artistic side. James can use it, too, but he is not interested in paint. It is all too messy for him.
