Squeeze Bottle Painting:
Finding ways to introduce art and different materials in the infant program. We have been challenging our thoughts on how to extend painting further than just finger painting or brushes because we believe children are able to express themselves in so many ways! Therefore, we have been challenging them to incorporate alternative fine motor skills like pinching and squeezing. The squeeze bottles allowed the children to practice these skills by using one hand or two to squirt the paint out. This began our exploration of colour mixing! Furthermore, we also believe that what can be experienced inside can also be experienced outside – still practicing the same skills but allowing for further discoveries!
