I have this book full of ideas for preschool aged kids. One of the activities in there is a Michelangelo painting. It sounded like something the girls would love. I wasn’t really thrilled with the idea of paint though, so we just went with good old crayons and paper.
What you do is tape a piece of paper to the underside of a table. The kids lay under the table and draw/paint a picture. Easy and really fun.
Our table was a little too high for the girls to reach when laying down so we used storage boxes to boost them up.
They really liked it.
Brooklyn drew a hot air balloon.
Sierra drew my mom.
Here Sierra’s showing me grandma’s spiky blue hair. She’s a realistic artist, you know.
Both girls wanted to keep coloring so they brought out their Care Bear activity/coloring books.
We’ve been doing a lot more hands on activities during school time. We’ve also been doing a lot of singing and dancing and poems and acting. It’s been so much fun.
I rarely take pictures during school because I just can’t. It’s way too hard keeping Payson from completely destroying the school room while teaching and playing with the girls. A camera in hand just doesn’t fit in. I might just take pictures of what they’ve done at the end. Or maybe just one or two snaps during. We’ll see.
