Nope...we don't wear smocks....too hard, and the parents know to wear 'daycare' clothes. this helps the kids with spontaneos painting!!
Lee Lee has just started walking and found the easle. She now loves to be here....and loves to paint!!!! The paper...the easel....the chair...the wall....the floor....silly Lee.C.C. loves to paint too!!Glue...I buy big containers of glue...glue is sooooo much fun! We just get out paper and let them glue. After they do this many, many times...it is much easier to teach them how to do projects with a little bit of glue. This activity is important on so many levels! Gravity....fine motor strength (squeezing is hard work!)....eye hand coordination....spacial awareness....what happens if you squeeze harder?.....and just plain ol curiosity and fun!!!! They need strong fingers to do all that writing and drawing and this is a perfect way to get there!
