You might recognize this scene from yesterday's post where we had a BIG old PIN-FAIL with bubble cloud painting. What WORKED about this setup was the ability to take the art outside. If those blue bubbles had gone all over the place indoors, I might have thrown a hissy fit, but outside on an old quilt? No biggie.
My plan had been to do "stations" of art so that no one child was bored. One kiddo was supposed to do bubble art, one was to just color in a coloring book and the third got a giant stick of blue chalk, an easel and some butcher paper to draw the clouds he saw in the sky. The previous day we had read a bunch of library books about clouds, so they were still in the excited "Hey I see a moutton cloud!!" mode and this simple activity was actually the best of the three.
