momstown Milton had a howling good time at their Picasso's in the Park this month. To keep with our momstown theme of the Desert, they introduced their kids to a common desert animal - the Coyote! Kids of all ages could participate in this simple yet engaging craft. Warning - be prepared to get messy!
Red and Yellow Paint
Construction Paper cut outs - Coyote and the moon
1. Put globs of red and yellow paint sparingly onto a "heavy" paper.
Learning Aspect - Talk to your child about mixing colours and what colour will appear when red and yellow paints are mixed together.
Green Tip - save cereal boxes - open and cut along the seam. Turn over for a great inexpensive paint canvas!
Sensory - let kids use their hands to mix the paint instead of a brush.
2. Let paint dry and then glue on coyote and moon cut outs.
