This blog was created to share ideas for age appropriate activities that are fun and creative yet educational. 8 years of preschool, one day of kindergarten, and back to preschool again. I'm sure you'll find something you like.
We used a paper towel roll and toilet paper tubes (In Ohio, we weren't allowed to use these in classroom, so check your state rules before you use them.) to roll paint.
First, she stacked them. (Fun future building toy)
Then we painted the tube.
Then rolled the tube on paper. I put paper on a cookie sheet that has a boarder thinking it would keep the paper still, but I still had to hold the paper for her to roll or help her roll while she held the paper.
The more you roll, the neater it looked. We turned the paper and rolled the other way too.
