Today was our second lesson in our Community Helpers COOP class and I was really excited about today because it happened to be about one of my favorite helpers: Artists.
Art, as you know, is EVERYWHERE we look. From the books we read, the cartoons our children watch, to the pictures and paintings hung in our homes; we can see art displayed all around us. Each piece bringing us emotions and memories we cherish and love.
For today’s lesson, I wanted to let the kiddos get creative and paint Sand Dollar Ornaments.
This was a very quick, easy and fun project. They dove right in and completed their sand dollars in record time. We helped hot glue the ribbons on so no one got injured.
In the excitement and concentration of today, I forgot to actually get some snap shots of them painting and working on their lessons but I promise I will get more of those next week!
In addition to teaching your children about what an Artist does, this is a great Christmas craft to do with the little ones. Just set out some Washable Finger paints, place a sand dollar on some tissue paper or newspaper and let them paint away. It’s an adorable and easy gift your family and friends can cherish for a lifetime (so long as they keep it stored safely).
I will be working to post our Weekly Lessons in my Free Printables section so that all of you have access to the curriculum I have written for our course this semester.
Until next week!
Blessings and love,
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.”
