Other Information:
 Part Two: Sculpture and Painting for Tiny Hands Children will experience the magic and creative expression of play dough. Learning how to roll play dough into shapes helps strengthen children’s fine motor skills while encouraging free play and creativity. This activity helps develop vocabulary as the teacher suggests techniques for manipulating the medium and discusses their sculptures with the children, and is a door into a child’s early literacy development through this interaction with a caring adult, a necessary component of early learning. A recipe for homemade play dough will be provided. Painting for Tiny Hands offers endless opportunities for children to develop and solve ideas and problems. Paint can be applied with fingers, brushes, or even splattered with a toothbrush and is an excellent medium for a child’s efforts with communication. Fine motor skills, necessary for writing, are being utilized. Parents will receive information about how to create a mess-free environment for their children to paint and create freely and also ideas for implementing painting into their outdoor play. They will also receive recipes for paints to make at home.
