Chalk and Dots

March 18, 2010

From art group a few weeks ago: sidewalk chalk, construction paper, and office supply "stickers" (labeling dots and page reinforcers). A good lesson in looking for inexpensive, inspiration in unexpected places like the office supply aisle. Also a very good lesson in never underestimating how focused and creative a group of pre-schoolers can be when given some very simple supplies.

Gosh, yes. My five-year-olds spent a very happy hour sticking stickers into their workbooks a few weeks ago. I think it's the concentration required for little fingers to peel them free from the backing paper that make stickers so absorbing.

SO MUCH FUN! i think the office supply store has the best art materials to be found anywhere! we're burning through a big thing of dots at the moment and i am finding them everywhere!

I agree that some basic supplies, like plain paper and some writing utensils, can go for hours. Great post! (also thanks for the feedback on the app!)

I'm enjoying looking at your blog, you should try little cups of water next time you get the chalk out, if the kids dip the chalk just a little its a neat affect especially with dark paper.
