Friday

“Wrap Myself in Paper”

Today we will paint with string.

Changes to the Environment

The dramatic play area will feature a laundry area with a clothesline. For art and sensory play we will dip string into glue, put it onto paper and feel the difference between it when it is wet and when it is dry.  Once it’s dry, we’ll paint on it!  For construction play we will construct a large maze using string.  For small motor play we will weave with string.  For large motor play we’ll dance with ribbons.

Special Notes

We will eat a string cheese snack this week!
