To celebrate the new year, the PrePreppers did colorful fireworks paintings with forks. They got to spread around the paint to decorate the night sky before gluing little buildings and city lights onto their creations.
After our fireworks were done, we started a long project to welcome in our new PrePreppers. The book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? was a good starting point for color lessons, so we read it together. Following story time, we started making our own book! Each day, we painted a different color from the book. I then cut out the animal that matched that color and let each of my friends glue their own personally painted animal into their little book. In about two more weeks, we’ll have an entire Brown Bear book ready to take home to enjoy. However, that’s a lot of painting back-to-back, so we also took breaks to color and glue shapes periodically to keep the enthusiasm fresh.
