Mural

The kids are making a mural today....we actually do this a lot. They love working together and getting ideas from each other as to what to draw and paint. The kids draw their own pictures to paint :) I love sharpies!! And watercolor.....

My kid is studying in a private junior school in Ontario .Her teacher was teaching them about different shapes. The very next day she gave each of them a chart paper in which she had drawn a different shape (like one got circle the other one a triangle ...)she asked to identify the shape and ask to draw a picture with it and color it. My child was very excited about this . She got a triangle and she drew huge mountains with that. After her class there was a huge discussion between the kids what each of them got and what they drew with it.Kids enjoy such classes. Teachers should try out such different methods. It makes the classes more interesting .

My little girls are getting old enough to attend school and I need to begin going back to work. I don't know if I want to send them to a preschool or a childcare facility. Do you have any insights of what I should do and what the difference is between the two of them? http://www.rainbowschoolinc.com/services.html

Painting a mural is such a great idea for little kids to do. I know that my sister, who owns a daycare, let the kids paint a mural and after it dried, they placed it on the wall. All the the children loved seeing their work displayed and they showed their parents which section they painted. http://www.kiddielodgechildcareframingham.com

I use to take my son to day care all the time when I worked really long hours. I mean it was really helpful and really meant a lot that they could take care of him and really help him out too. I really enjoyed seeing him after a long day at work with a big smile on his face when I picked him up.

That looks like a great idea for a preschool or childcare. Are those just water colors? Where did you get such big containers of that? Thanks for the great photography!

This looks like something the kids would love. I want to put my daughter in a childcare where she's not only playing but also learning. I think kids catch on to things a lot faster when their young.

My sister runs a daycare and has been looking for some activities for the children to do. She's been steering away from paints because she's worried that it will damage the carpeting in her home. However, I think painting a mural would be fun for the kid! Are there any paints you would recommend that she use that would be easy to clean?

Thanks for sharing! I love getting ideas for my own kids from other creative people online. I like the idea of all the kids working on the same piece of paper-- I think it would help with sharing and unity as well. I'm sure they'd all love to see their work hanging on the playroom wall.

That looks like a lot of fun. I think it's a good idea for you to let kids do this. It helps them be creative.

I have been looking at taking my child to a care center while my wife and I work. Because finances have been tight, we have both needed to start working again and that come with the price of leaving our child at home. I would feel a lot more comfortable if they were out playing and a day care or somewhere other than sitting at home all day.

I'm always worried that my child isn't going to learn while they are at day care. I want them to do activities that they would do while at home to further life skills. Painting is definitely something that could open the door for my child's learning. http://www.fun-n-fit.com/infant-program

That looks like such fun project for the kids. They're so creative! I bet you keep them really busy and doing things. It looks like a fun child care school you have going on there. I admire your effort. It seems to pay off with the kids.
