Preppers: Symmetry Paintings

This week, the Preppers learned about symmetry. I explained that a paper that was symmetrical was the same on both sides, and then showed them how to fold their papers to make a painting that mirrored itself. They loved the process and had a great time deciding what their final images were. We had a lot of butterflies, a dinosaur, an octopus, Elsa and Anna, a monster, and two fish.


Preppers: Easter Eggs!

Easter is one of the best excuses to break out the art supplies. There are so many projects we could do! The Prepper class got to enjoy several days of shaving cream art–one of my favorite activities–that they then used to marble their easter egg stencils. The final eggs are up in the hallways for admirers to look at. We also made baskets out of popsicle sticks and drew baby chicks both in and out of eggs. It has been a super fun series of projects!


Preppers: Winter art!

With the cold weather moving in, the desire for snow is strong in the Prepper class. The ever-popular snowflake art was first on the agenda. We got to cut out snowflakes together to glue into painted snowstorms. You can see the finished ones up on the wall in some of the pictures. The next project was to make snowmen! Everyone loves a cute snowman, and these were simply adorable! The students got to draw, cut out, and decorate their snowmen before taking them home to show mom and dad.


Preppers: Halloween!!

In preparation for the most fantastic holiday of the year, the Preppers have been doing all sorts of crafts. We started have created bat paintings, explored worm (spaghetti) sensory bins and rice sensory bins, played a ghost matching games, done pumpkin drawings and paintings, and glued together silly monster faces. The rice was definitely the most popular activity, but we’ve had fun with all of it.
