One thing that might seem insignificant to an adult but
fascinating to the artists is washing their hands with a bar of soap.
I had some handmade soap for most of the year that had a lavender scent to it.
The children would wash their painted hands swirling the soap
around. They would always ask about the smell.
At first they would look for the pump bottle m but now always
look for the bar. This is yet another tiny way that they can feel and
small motor muscles are built .
