In my last post, I covered our experience with painting cardboard flaps. But what to do with the left over boxes? Well, we painted those, too, of course!
|Children need an upright easel to practice hand dominance and the proper pencil grasp. This child displays the mature 3 finger pencil grip.|
|For more information on building pencil grasp, please visit this website, called OT Mom.|
|When the box was dry, I decided to use it as a 3D picture art display.|
|For now, I put pictures of the children painting on cardboard...|
|...but this can be re-used to display pictures of any activity, and displayed around the room.|
|I even stapled it to one, bare corner of the classroom, just above the children's eye level. We hung children's art from the bottom of the box. Now it's being displayed in the hallway just outside the classroom.|
