Peeps and More

This week at the art center we:

  • Rolled and stamped blue saltdough and mashed it into plastic easter eggs
  • Stamped with Peeps using puffy paint made from equal parts shaving cream and glue
  • Enjoyed a Megasized “Marble” roll with plastic easter eggs
  • Swirled paint to marbelize water bottles

One little artist decided to mix media, first she used the leftover paint from the marble activity to print on her paper, then she stamped with peeps, finally she found a pair of scissors and cut pieces of paper to stick to her masterpiece. Providing open ended activities and remaining flexible with our expectations can allow little artists to grow as independent thinkers.

Don’t forget to subscribe to this blog for a chance to win a copy of “Mudworks.”  Only one more week until I start posting every day for thirty days about easel activities.

    OMG! I can’t believe we missed this week. I can’t tell the little one. He LOVES peeps, eggs, & went nuts the last time he was able to roll something around in that plastic pool.

    I love the rolling around things in the plastic pool too. It’s like playing with a parachute “messy style”. 😀

    I had a mom tell me about an activity with peeps her preschool age son did this past Easter at their preschool. They dipped peeps in vanilla pudding and rubbed it across finger paint paper! Hmmm…next spring 🙂
