Whatever it was, the cotton or the mood, L loved this activity, as did her dad and I. For me, there was just something so satisfying about the squish of wet cotton on the paper. L, for her part, managed to get through one entire piece of paper before sticking both hands in the pie tin, and that is REALLY saying something!
As the process moved forward, L, Dad, and I all ended up working on the same sheet of paper. The collaborative nature of the thing made it all the more fun, and it was wonderful to spend such quality time bonding over a shared piece of artwork.
