Teaching how to hold pencil: cut two holes in an old sock for the index finger and thumb. The other fingers remain in the sock. Genius!!
"As a kinder and 1st project we read the book The Dot. A cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students were able to paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors. This was a nice simple opportunity for students to use paints and learn the expectations for using watercolors. Ask them why brushes don't like bad hair days!" make art, color art, the dot, art lessons, splatter splash, elementary art, art activities, art projects, books for kids
The Dot is a great book for kids struggling with perfectionism and teaching them to recognize the good in themselves, not just what they see as not good enough... and then to cement the lesson kids can make their own dot pictures like in the story.

Wall art from toddler scribble... kids love to make art and most of the time they do it for the process and experience of creating something, neglecting their work once they are done. This project is a great way to reuse their otherwise recycled drawings to create a collaborative piece between teachers and children. A fantastic way to decorate your space so that it reflects everyone in it. toddler canvas art, toddler scribbl, toddler arts and craft, kid art, toddler artwork, turn toddler, kids art project, toddlers, scribbl art
Wall art from toddler scribble... I want to collect all the discarded/unwanted art work at the end of the week and (maybe have anna?) put together something beautiful with it, like this piece.
