Lil’ Explorers Focus Skills
- Use a variety of visual art materials (paint, markers, crayons, clay) with minimal adult assistance
- Use visual arts to represent people, places, and things, using spatial awareness to coordinate the features of the representation
- Explore the use of materials in a variety of different ways
If your Lil’ is going to use the sandcastle template print it out HERE or grab a piece of white paper for your Lil’ to paint.
In a bowl combine:
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup sand
- 1/2 flour
Use a paintbrush to paint a sandcastle using our sand mixture.
Decorate your sandcastle with shells.
This “paint” takes a little longer to dry and you may want to place your paper on piece of cardboard or a cutting board as it will be heavy.
Bonus – allow your Lil’ to measure out the ingredients for the paint mixture, this is an awesome way to bring some measurements into your lessons.
Show off your sandcastles! What did you think of our new paint medium? How did your Lil’ do with it?
