Join me there to see what all this change is about or to check out my recent experiment on "washable" tempera paint. Which one of these is actually washable? Come on over to Make+Believe to find out :)

While I have been taking a hiatus from classes for the month of August, I have been hard at work on an exciting new project. As part of this new project, I will be moving all of the content from this blog, Littlest Birds Studio, to my new blog, Make+Believe. All of the class archives will be there to jump-start the fun posts to come.
Aren't you curious? Join me now at makeplusbelieve.blogspot.com :)

This week in the older 2s class we went back to the basics with good old finger painting. Although our tempera projects often turn into finger painting, we haven't focused solely on this sensory experience in a long time. When we've done finger painting in the past, it was always with regular tempera paints so the kids could really get to know the type of paint that we use most often. This time we tried out some gel-like "finger paints" that have a very different consistency than the tempera paints. The kids had so much fun squishing, mixing and rubbing the paint all over!

Summer Inspired Upcycled Collage project from a few weeks ago. I used paper shape-punchers on old group paintings to create fun, interesting collage materials again- but this time I added the step of drawing with oil pastels before doing the collage. After drawing, I offered the children glue and collage materials to create their collage.
