Toddler Art Group
By now you will all know that I never have an origingal thought!! After reading through The Artful Parent blog a few times, I thought, I have to start my own art group like her - something creative for my last little girl at home to do. So I put out an email and got a great response from all my friends that would be interested in doing it with me....
We decided to start off nice and easy and we just painted using the home made paint recipe from Creative House I have great plans for subsequent classes using many of the tips from the Artful Parent. Luckily numbers were small for my first "practice run" as next time we will have double the amount of kids!!
It was great to see how long the chidrens attentions spans are, and as she said on the artful parent - the kids will play in the warm soapy water longer than the activity. So apart from half the kids wanting to get their clothes off, my daughter and friend hopping into the bucket and a "picking up her own poo off the ground cause I am naked accident" by someone who shall remain nameless ( *cough* *cough* my kid!)
I think the class went well!! :)
