Under the sea is all about sea creatures in this house. I always love letting my little ones create. Even though the mess at the end is massive, the smiles on their faces are well worth it.
I have decided to to join Mama VS. Teacher with her brand new linky #imaginationmatters ~ all about creativity and imagination with your kids. I think it’s an excellent idea and can’t wait to do each week’s challenge. Below is a list of the activities if you wish to join.
I decided to print out some coloring pages with all kinds of sea creatures and let them paint instead of color the pages. I also found some googly eyeballs in one of the art boxes and so I poured them on the table and let them glue them after the pages had dried. I am pretty sure my printer is about out of ink now after printing 3 pages per creature and they kept wanting more.
I usually put down wrapping paper or plain brown packing paper when they paint but I was fresh out of it this day and had already told them that we would do some painting. Needless to say, the table now has some new added color to it.
I think it is so important to let our kids be creative and use imagination. Who cares if they color a tree blue or put 8 eyeballs on the Octopus. I love any form of art and I am always encouraging my mini monsters to find their own way of loving it as well.
