This past week our preschool children enjoyed painting outside on our big playground. Painting outside brings an entirely new level of creativity to an already loved activity. As children create outside, they’re exposed to new senses (the sounds of birds singing or the sounds of the city, the smells of the morning, or warmth of the sun). Children are encouraged by each other and often children who dismiss painting inside become curious and choose to try a new activity. Our children truly enjoyed creating beautiful masterpieces outside!
