Balloon Finger Print Painting Curriculum for Pre-Kinders!

We have been working on a super fun curriculum this fall/winter...and I am so, so sad that it will soon come to an end this month!

We have been working on a sensory curriculum...involving a lot of body printing.

Everything has been based upon fine motor skills with these tiny tykes and we have also been doing a LOT of finger printing, hand and foot prints :)

These projects were some of my favorite. We worked on two different projects where the kids worked on finger printing the end of each balloon string (as opposed to smearing the paint all over their canvas :) Dont get me wrong...I adore the crazy finger paintings that are crazy messy, but this is a totally new skill at this age.

Check out their adorable work! I took their photos outside in the courtyard outside of the studio and desaturated their darling images to create their painting template :)

OH these kids melt me!!!
