Creative beginnings for tiny tots

Always a crowd pleaser, Kevin Henkes’ “Kitten’s First Full Moon” inspired monochromatic studies in black and white this week.

We introduced found objects as painting tools (cotton swabs, lids of various sizes, tubes, and round pieces of foam) to expand notions (for the tots and their adult partners) of ways to make marks on paper, as well as to reinforce connections to the repeating circle images in the story.

Magnificent modern art!
