ART4TOTS

How cute is this? The first session of our new "Art4Tots" group took place yesterday at ARTS, and we had a great time! There were 5 kids, aged between 2 and a half and 4 years old (mostly 2 and a half!), and a couple of babies, and of course the moms! The whole point of this group is to encourage and allow kids to explore art materials and have fun, without emphasizing the end result. We made paint out of shaving cream and white glue and color....painted with wooden spoons, sponges, brushes and fingers, and probably the most fun was cleaning up in the soapy water. This group will meet on Tuesday mornings starting in September, and I think it will be a great way to introduce children to messy art materials without having to worry about the mess!
