Many companies now use brown packaging paper to fill empty space in boxes and now, before it goes into our recycle bin, I smooth it out and let the girls GET THEIR ART ON!
I especially like the larger pieces that fit a toddler-sized body. As I trace, we review BODY PARTS VOCABULARY. Soon, I'm going to introduce some basic ANATOMY lessons and we'll attempt to draw those (especially the parts involving digestion, a favorite topic in my family).
I'll be saving the nicest paintings for some lovely brown paper packages tied up in string (inspired by this wrapping paper post).
