Tuesday's Tot Trio #10
If your home is anything like ours, you have a little Tot who desperately wants to be included in the school time fun. Here are three simple, tot-frienly ideas to help ignite the love of learning in the youngest of home scholars.
This week's agenda had a bit of an artistic theme.
First up was to make "foam" paintings. I drew sheep (Remember...I've already mentioned that I am NOT an artist. So, I'm afraid my sheep looked more like a sheep dog.) and then mixed equal parts of white glue and shaving cream.
The two youngest Littles got to hand paint their sheep. The glue helped the shaving cream to maintain its fluffy, 3-dimentional look and dried hard to make a foam-like paint.
Next was sidewalk chalk on a small chalkboard.
And finally, I put a rubber band around a handful of markers and watched as he created a masterpiece of repeating colors and designs.
