I have a few young 3 year olds in my class that really love getting into paint. So I decided to set up the outside table with large pieces of bark, rocks, and assorted pots of paint. They wasted no time mixing the colors and painting the wood, the table, and their hands. (Later, I found handprints along the walls of the playhouse.) I love to sit back and observe this type of play.
I'm linking up with It's Playtime. Hop on over and see some other wonderful play links! Do you have a playful learning idea to share?
