Pointillism Art with Q-tips and Watercolors
Pointillism art with Q-tips is one of our standby, super-easy-yet-interesting activities that we turn to again and again. I set it up for after school or after nap (back in the day when my kids took naps) or in other in-between times. We've done it with a variety of paints and papers (white on black was especially striking) but not watercolors, so this time around I decided to set up the pointillism activity with liquid watercolors and watercolor paper. I'm so glad I did! I love how well it…
Dinosaurs for Preschoolers - Part 2

To appease the sadness, I gave Adrian the dinosaur toob and told him it was his to keep now and for a mere moment, it seemed to make amends but not for long. I love feeding Adrian's curiosity but at the same time, my mini-units are planned for a one week span only. I guess we'll be adding this theme to next year's agenda? :) Salt Dough Dinosaur Fossils…
