Pre-Preppers: Fall Trees

As the autumn weather sets in and the leaves fall from the trees, our Pre-Prepper class did a fun and messy stamping activity with the colors we were seeing outside. Armed with cotton balls, clothes pins, and paint, they got to decorate tree outlines with some enthusiastically placed leaf blobs. I think the trees came out adorably, and it let many of my little friends enjoy some freedom with their favorite art material: paint.

PreK: Sneak Peak

This year’s Christmas Tree is going to be Lego themed, so the kids have been working on making ornaments out of the little colored bricks. Not only was it a great creative exercise, it was also a lot of fun, and a great way to encourage sharing. Many students discussed the colors they needed and traded with each other so that they all got what they needed for their artwork.
