Last week, the Pre-prepper class did some practice with shapes. Using blocks and stencils, we worked on tracing the outlines of the basic shapes in addition to some unusual ones, like flowers, dinosaurs, dog bones, and hearts. The activity started off a little slow, but quickly became very popular! The Pre-preppers liked it so much that I kept the blocks out for this past week as well. While waiting for a turn with the marble paintings, my friends liked to sit down and give it another go.
This week was all about marble paintings. With a box, a few blobs of paint, and a handful of marbles, the Pre-preppers had a wonderful time learning a new process for making abstract art. While waiting, they were also welcome to draw with chalk, or paint some circles.
