Preschoolers love to paint. Painting with watercolors teaches the children to explore the world around them. It enables them to be creative and also to use their imagination to create whatever they want to. If they color the hair red/blue etc... let them. It is their original art.
Fine motor skills are also result of learning fine arts. This is something the kids will enjoy and have loads of fun.......
You can plan your entire lesson plan around these activities or use them to incorporate painting while teaching them. My daughter spends hours painting and coloring and enjoys it the most. This sure is the best way to keep the kids away from the tv. These kits are from the dollar store- they come with the outline and a pack of six colors and a paintbrush. Cheap and fun!
Looking forward to seeing you at the next post bah bhyee
