well, well, well.
this seems like a LONG time ago.
in some ways it was.
i am enjoying looking back at last year
in the midst of looking forward to the start of another year.
on the last days of 2010-2011
we followed the footsteps of many other preschools
and made our own tall painting.
tall painting
children chose a baby food jar of paint
and after a lot of explanation, watching videos and demonstration,
the paint was poured out (without touching the cylinder).

after they poured out their jar of paint
they could grab a paint brush and go paint an old outdoor sign.

how amazing that even after dumping out the jar, there is still more paint in there!

we used a mailing tube because that’s what we had.
i’d love to try this again with a square block.
