Our infants in the Greece program show how exploring paint can engage their interest and stimulate learning! Their teachers cut pieces of construction paper and drop dabs of pain on them inside of zip-lock bags. This provides the babies a safe way to explore and manipulate the paint.
The children squeezed, squished and swished their bags of paint with their fingers as the teachers verbally describe their actions and the effect on the paint! The crinkly sound of the bag, the slippery feel of the paint in the bag, and the visual experience of watching the paint move provides new hands-on discoveries for young minds!
