Got Paint??

So, two of my classes painted today with tempera paint and I absolutely could not throw it out at the end of the day. I have such a hard time wasting art supplies...I'm sure we all feel the same way. Anyway, I was looking at all those palettes wondering what in the world I could do, besides scrape it out for reuse.

Then I remembered good ol' Eric Carle and his beautiful collages. I have always wanted to do an Eric Carle project, but never have...weird, I know. So, I grabbed a stack of white drawing paper and just started to fill the page with the leftover paint. Now, I have 10+ sheets of "Eric Carle" paper for collage projects! (or Henri Matisse for that matter!)

Just an idea....
