Fave new book!
There are tons of recipes for homemade play dough, but this is the best we've found! It's soft, easy to work with, and not sticky or crumbly! This recipe makes about three to four large fist-sized balls of dough; adjust as necessary to make more.
We have a delightful little group of 3-5 year old artists in our classes this Fall - some of whom are new to exploring with art materials and some who, even at their short stature, try to teach us a thing or two. Regardless of age, any lesson that involves color mixing is always a hit!
Here's a super fun, active, & collaborative art project for toddler & preschool age kids: giant marble painting! It's a great way for kids to improve their fine and gross motor skills as well as their coordination!
We did this block print project in our 3-5 yr. old class this week. We didn't want to let the kids take them home!
This is guaranteed to be the cleanest, best smelling art project you'll ever do - shaving cream paper marbling!
