Monotyping - the kid version

I've been monotyping with my 4 year old nephew, well actually he's been doing it with a little help from me! I had a small piece of thick acrylic, he paints on it with temperas then we flip it over on the paper, press hard (he loves this part) and lift carefully. Ta da instant art! I'm definitely framing these, they turned out so great! Unlike the second page we did where he insisted on mixing ALL the colors together on the acrylic, that resulted in a brownish/greenish color not at all pretty.
