I am a Reggio Emilia inspired Full Day Kindergarten teacher and mother to three young children. This blog is meant as a communication tool for the families of our children and as a learning tool for the many educators who follow us. Please feel free to comment on posts and participate in our collective understanding of emergent curriculum.
We tried a new and very exciting way of painting today! Using elastics, we stretched and splattered paint against a paper in order to create interesting pieces of artwork. (This activity is very messy and not for the faint of heart!)
Safety goggles are a must so paint doesn't get in anyone's eyes.
After stretching elastics around a basket or box, children put a thick coat of paint on each elastic.
Then the elastic is snapped so the paint is flung against the paper.
