the very messy mirrors

We have rediscovered the fun of mirrors this year. We've created loose-part, impermanent designs. Other days we've drawn, using markers on mirrors. On yet another day we created painted prints on mirrors. And sometimes we even just stare at ourselves in the mirrors, making faces. 

Sometimes it just takes a small, novel change to make drawing, painting, or designing with loose-parts feel new, fresh, and exciting again.

A beautiful and intentional space and provocation is important to us.
Starting with beauty may just beget beauty...


And look at what you get!

It's so fun that most do it again. and again. and again.
And so far (knock on wood) there have been no incidents of painted bathroom mirrors at home! How do you use mirrors with children?
