December’s tip:

Sometimes it is not about painting a picture that is important, it is often the process and experience!  In this case it was about the way the paint felt as it was squished between the fingers!                            photo 1

Because that is what bear eyes look like!

Because that is what bear eyes look like!

A few children were at the art table; I had bear shaped paper, googly eyes markers, glue, and of course scissor!  I was very curious as to what I observed…the children were cutting googly eyes and saving the black circles inside!

When I said I was interested as to why they were cutting the googly eyes open I was told  “so we can glue eyes on the bear”.  Logically, I asked why not glue on the googly eyes as is?  I was told, “because that is not what bear eyes look like!”
