A Whole Body Experience – Painting

Occasionally we provide the children with an exciting and fun way to experience materials. Today, we wore our diapers while we painted so that we could enjoy this activity to the fullest…………..  Before the paint, we let the children enjoy explore the paper on the floor.  The jumped, ran, listened to the sounds of their feet on the paper, and squealed in delight!Then it was time for the paint!  They used their fingers first, and then their whole bodies took over!  

In the end, we created a piece that we are using as a background for our “investigation of jungle animals”.  The children were able to experience this activity in a multistory way, which is the best way for young children to learn.
