Large murals or coloring pages as are big hit over here. We were inspired by the Three Little Pigs for this one and I absolutely love just how simple it is to set up. I am certainly not the most amazing artist, but luckily neither of my kids care in the slightest. They were just super excited to get to paint their very own giant mural!

This preschool activity works on arts and writing skills as your child is working on holding ready instrument correctly.
