Printing with Porcupine Balls

Baby Bear asks to paint almost every day. He still likes using his  hands and brushes to paint, but sometimes it is fun to use an unusual item and explore a new texture during painting time. This time, I handed Baby Bear a couple of small porcupine balls instead of his brushes. We had fun stamping and rolling the balls across the paper to make trails of tiny dots across the page.

You want me to paint with this?

Okay, here goes!
