It is time to play with our doctor tools, at least the syringes anyway. We are going to use her syringes for some splatter art. This is another example of process art where the purpose is to have fun while creating without a huge focus on the final product.
Using the syringe allows your Lil’ to paint and play in a way that is less than conventional while building fine motor skills as it requires your Lil’ to grip and push on the syringe.
