This week we have continued our painting fun and also combined this with becoming more familiar with letters.
We are starting with the letter A.
Firsty I printed out a sheet of paper showing a large capital letter A, a lower case A and a picture of an apple.
I placed this together with other examples of the letter A, magnets and sponges etc, that I found around the house.
W and I then spent a few minutes looking at these before getting on with the painting.
I then put out a couple of blobs of red and green paint in an old food tray, and a few marshmallows.
We have had great fun using different materials to paint with, toilet rolls, potatoes and pom poms, but I suspect this may have been a favourite as he got stuck straight in. Thankfully, not having seen a marshmallow before, he didn’t try to eat them either!
I tried to encourage him to stay between the lines a bit but, to be honest, he is still a bit small for that and as long as he enjoys it I wasn’t too fussed.
Here is the final result…
If you would like to have a go yourself you can download the sheet for free here: A is for apple
Now, what shall we do for B? Any suggestions folks?
