It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring and we are making art!
It’s another gloomy day in our neck of the woods. That means no outside time for my kinders today.
I decided that we would be artists today, make some abstract art to brighten up the morning. So I set out some black paint, paper and plastic cups. It took about a half a minute before I had a child interested in what was going on.
Child L came over and started making circles on her page. What fun, but what comes next Miss Tiffany?
This is when I introduced four new colours: red, yellow, pink and turquoise. Child L went straight to work adding colour into her circles.
This activity was a lot of fun! It was also a great fine motor skills activity. Bonus both of my children came over and joined in also. My son just might be starting to enjoy arts&crafts!
My son exploring the paint station. He decided to use a jello cup instead of the round cup.
My daughter went in a different direction… as she always does. S marches to the beat of her own drum. I love that so much about her.
The finished product! I think I might have a few budding artists in my group. Of course the lovely sun belongs to my little ray of sunshine.
What do you do to get through a gloomy rainy day?
