This week: We played with sticks both big and small. The Saplings explored the pointillism painting technique throughout the week, working our way from dark to light by adding a new color to our paintings each day. Children discovered that they could use their fingertips as well as the tips of leaves and stems to create dots of various sizes. A couple of children renamed the technique "dotilism"!
Next week : We'll we wrapping up our stick explorations by making fairy sticks and rain sticks. We're looking forward to playing with gourds and thinking of about gratitude throughout the month of November!
