Finger Painting with Van Gogh & Beethoven

Today’s activity: learn about an artist, then listen to classical music and do a finger painting. So… we learned about Vincent Van Gogh, and looked at some of his paintings online. I just got a new app on my iPad (PuzzlePlus) and it has some Van Gogh paintings, so we did a few of the puzzles while Jackson napped. After dinner, we started finger-painting! We listened to classical music on Pandora (a Beethoven station), and I pulled up a picture of Van Gogh’s Starry Night (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Vincent_van_Gogh_Starry_Night.jpg). The kids tried to recreate it. They had a lot of fun getting messy! I was so glad Jackson participated in this activity – normally he just cries if he gets messy, but he loved it!

P.S. We are loving the classical music. Still listening to it!! 🙂
