one of my favorite things is painting with uNcoNVeNtioNaL iTeMS.
this approach usually gets Bear to the preschool table faster than anything else.
right now we are talking about the letter M- identifying the upper/lower case versions and the sound it makes. Bear was bored the other day, so i busted out the paint and some cars for him to paint with. i honestly had nO inTenTiON of making him use a specific color. but he choose the brown paint because it looked like mud. works for me!
he poured the paint onto our paint tray and muddied away painting with the cars!!! ((our paint tray is a plastic shoe box lid))
