Fun with Fingerpaints @ The Nesconset Branch!

Today at the Nesconset Branch, we rolled up our sleeves, threw on our smocks, and got down and dirty with finger paint! Children ages 2-3 years old with their parents and caregivers joined us for songs and stories, and visited different painting stations, that featured various brushes, rollers and stamps! The masterpieces youngsters created are now on display in the Children’s Department.

Looking for some artistic inspiration for you and your little one? Try some of these picture books about painting, colors and creativity. Then bust out the finger paints and tablecloths, and let your imagination run wild!
