In the category of ‘Lessons I’ve learned the hard way’, one is that you should let children have the opportunity to paint every day.
A few years ago I had every intention of getting paint out, but you know how it goes. I’d forget to get it ready right away, time would slip away, and before you knew it, another Center Time had slipped away with no paint.
The next year I talked with one of our graduates. “How’s kindergarten?”I asked. She answered, “Great! Our teacher lets us paint every day!!” Ouch! The knife in my heart!!
So, take my advice. Have it available every day, or at least two or three times a week. One or two colors is plenty, and they will love it!
