The 3 year old preschool comes to see me at the end of the day. Today, the kindergarten classes created barns and farms with tempera paint. Not one to waste my supplies, I thought about how the amazing 3’s could use the leftover paint. I thought about all the things we work on in pre-k, eye hand coordination, using different tools, using different mediums, creating patterns, etc. etc. So I created this pulled paint, plaid pattern lesson.
First they dipped a scrap of cardboard into the paint and pulled it across their paper. They could go both horizontally and vertically if they wanted to.
They loved it! Then used forks to add texture and added dots and lines. They had so much fun that I think I will do it again with the pre-K 4’s!
