to create an under water scene, we did the classic crayon resist and blue water paint (food coloring in water…it was april and all our liquid watercolor was gone).
a project well done outside.
coloring happened on the sidewalk and painting happened in the grass.
i imagine there will be a bit of culture shock in kindergarten when each child has her own box of crayons and his own cup of paint. until i see photos, i kind of forget how often we do things as a “school family.” this means plenty of asking someone to pass the white crayons, waiting for a color, thanking for the crayon, etc.
