String art

Have fun painting- use string to make stripes on a zebra.  Just dip the end into paint and swish it across a picture of a zebra.  Looks cool, and kids love to paint using string.

Glue dot idea

Here is an idea to teach kids how to make a glue dot. It seems that most kids squeeze, and squeeze, and squeeze a glue bottle until someone makes them stop.  Children have a difficult time understanding how to just make a dot.  Try this- put hole page hole protectors onto a paper and tell the kids to put dots inside the holes.  May take a few times for them to completely grasp the idea, but it gives them some tangible way to understand the idea of a dot.
