Kindergarten Prep children are physically and cognitively able to take on more challenges while still engaging in important foundational learning like friendship building and developing a strong self-concept. Our READY for SCHOOL program helps your child reach his or her greatest potential in all areas including beginning reading and writing skills, math and science concepts, large and small muscle skills, and social and emotional development.

Learning at Home

Messy Art Play

You Will Need:

Water, cooking oil, food dye set, paintbrush (bigger is better), sturdy paper plates, paper (solid color)

Directions:

Experiment by mixing food dye colors with water and adding oil to see what happens. Then, add one drop of the dye and oil mixture onto the paper plate and have your child brush the paper with the paint brush. The color of the drop should move gently around the paper with the oil/water mix gliding over the paper.

Tip:

Cover the surface with newspaper or a craft tablecloth, because the table can become messy and slippery with the oil.
