Try this ~ the next time your little one is painting be sure to play some music. Talk to your child about the beat, the rhythm, and how the music makes them feel.
We tried this activity and had a blast. Biscuit even told me that the music made her want to use different colors, then paint with her hands, etc. We did this for almost an hour.... that is a lifetime in a two year old's world!
So get the music pumping and enjoy creating a masterpiece with your little artist.
