It’s Artsy Thursday, and we are on day 4 of NAEYC’s Week of the Young Child™. You know what they say: time flies when you’re having fun.
Today we are getting our hands messy with some colorful finger paint, and look! The children are painting on a new sensory texture surface; foil!
For this activity, give each child a generous piece of foil. Have them squeeze it into a ball, and then ask them to uncrumple it. Add some paint, and let your preschoolers go to town. Once they are finished painting, have them press a piece of construction paper onto the foil. Kids should use their arm/hand strength to smooth out the foil, spreading the paint below. Simply peel off the paper and voila! Behold the artsiness!
