It’s been a crazy few weeks around here, but we’re wrapping up Art Studio and getting started with Science Lab. Oh, and did I mention that the little guy is technically a Kindergartner now? Wow! I can’t even begin to believe it!

Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.

Chalk is often used to create art on cement or sidewalks outside. Chalk art does not last very long and can be easily wiped away.

This is our second time around with Art Studio and I remember doing a similar chalk art project with the little guy a few years ago.

One of my favorite things about this curriculum and especially about doing it all over again is seeing how much the little guy has grown and changed and how different his experience is this time around.

We started with a pack of Crayola chalk, a container of water, and of course a list of questions.

The little guy and I talked about what might happen when you dip chalk into water, whether or not he’d like to be a chalk artist, and how to mix chalk colors. It was for sure lots of fun!
