We kicked off Art Play Group last Friday with a bang. It is so fantastic to see all these new faces along with our play group veterans. It’s amazing how much they’ve grown in just a few months! I just love watching these kids explore, create and get messy! Last season I found this great styrofoam insulation board at Home Depot and used it for all kinds of play. I’m so glad I held onto it because this play group season I clipped it onto our pool fence to create a painting wall that is just perfect for little kids! I love the way the light reflects on the foil. It creates a really attractive surface for the kids to paint on and they were all about it, which always brings a smile to my face. We used all kinds of brushes and rollers. Next time I plan to put out a bucket of soapy sponges to wash it with. The kids will love it! I think this will be a permanent art installation for the kids to paint on all spring and summer long. The best part is after class I can easily hose it down with water and the paint comes right off. So far we’ve tried shaving cream paint and yogurt paint. Both came off super easy. And just look at these kids. They were very busy!!!
