Pre-preppers: Sensory oceans!

Pre-preppers got messy this morning while hand painting “oceans” for their water transportation vehicles!


Pre-preppers: fingerpainting

Pre-preppers were given the opportunity to paint today in preparation for Valentine’s day projects. I gave them paintbrushes at first, then allowed them to use their hands while explaining that it’s okay to get messy in art! 😊


Pre-preppers: Snowy day art!

We love snow days, but it’s way too cold so we brought the snow inside! Pre-preppers loved experimenting with watercolors in the snow today!


Pre-Preppers: Q-tip Paintings

This week, the Pre-preppers have been stepping outside the norm with their painting materials. Instead of using paint brushes, we have been using Q-tips! The rounded tip allows for painting and drawing on our papers without the risk of tearing a hole through the sheet, so my little painters can use as much or as little paint as they would like.



Pre-Preppers: Easter art!

The Pre-Preppers have been enjoying a variety of sensory experiences lately. We glued and painted, played in shaving cream, and also played in a bucket of colorful grass with easter eggs. Our bunny pictures and painted eggs are up in the hallway for everyone to see, but the shaving cream art was really just for the fun of it, so here are some pictures from that wonderful day:



Pre-Preppers: Brown Bear, Brown Bear…

The Pre-Preppers have been steadily working their way through the animals of the Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? book, where we paint the animals featured in the story. This week, we were painting the Goldfish and the Green Frog.

Last week, we took a brief break from the painting to finish up a forgotten New Year’s project. My little friends had painted fireworks with a fork, but we never got around to gluing the city together on top. So last week, that’s what we did. With black rectangles for buildings and tiny yellow rectangles for windows, we built a city that could enjoy the fireworks display!
