It is MLK day - Miss A and I both have the day off. I did most of the laundry the day before so I had more time freed up today to do a fun artsy activity! I skimmed through Mary Ann Kohl's Preschool Art book for a quick, simple activity and spotted this activity involving baby oil... Luckily for us, I had one bottle that we rarely use so I poured some into a bowl and grabbed a handful of q-tips and cotton balls then set out an invitation for Miss A to expore this fun activity... We had a great time talking about sizes, how the oil feels, and sunlight! Check it out!
|Miss A preferred the q-tips. We talked about thick and thin lines.|
|The transparent lines!|
|Checking out the transparent design in the sunlight.|
|Of course, the crayons came out! We experimented with drawing over the baby oil.|
|Miss A then started making several A's with the crayons. How creative!|
