Solar Painting

Art is important for children especially during their early development.

Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood. Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and supports the development of cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills.

As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self-esteem and creativity. It is for this reason that we included an art project into our spring weather theme. Because we are learning about all things solar specifically, we painted with our very own suns!

Using yellow balloons as our inspiration, we dipped these into yellow paint and stamped some “suns” onto construction paper.
