Back in September, my first fall session of Kids Art was all about balls!
First, we got our painting on by marble painting! Each kid has a turkey pan that we lined with paper on the bottom. They plunked marbles into paint and then dropped them into the pan. Then, they rolled the marble around by shaking the pan. It was great, NOISY, fun.
Their amazing art gallery!
After they were done with marble painting, we read “A Ball for Daisy” by Chris Raschka, “This is My Ball” by Amanda Hudson, and “Watch Me Throw the Ball” by Mo Willems.
And after our stories, I got the kids up and we did two giant ball paintings, using a wading pool. I cropped the photo for privacy reasons, but imagine delighted smiles and wide eyes, and lots of noise.
