This is the first suggested read aloud for the Leonardo Da Vinci LRT.
The read aloud is an important part of many of the Little Rabbit Trails. We strongly encourage you read this aloud with your children no matter what their age is. It opens up the opportunity to discuss this book together. Don't miss out on experiencing Monday with a Mad Genius with your children.This is the first of two read aloud for the month.
Oil painting could be a fun new way for your children to express themselves through art. Find all of the supplies you will need below.
I suggest oil painting for mature children to adults or for children who are very into art.
I suggest you purchase a set of brushes that are not super cheap. There is nothing more frustrating that wanting to paint something and you dont have the tools to complete the job.
These would be fun for experimenting with the oil paints. Paint mountains adn experament with textures.
This product is used to prime the canvas prior to painting if you are going to try the wet on wet on wet technique.
Here is another great kids book on Leonardo. If your family is not into the Magic Tree ouse books this would be another great option. My family loves these books.
Try sculpting and feel how wonderful the cold clay feels in your hands. This is a great sensory activity for little ones.
Can you build a bridge just like Leonardo? Here is your chance to build one at a very small scale.
Explore the Anatomy of the human body. Make lean hands on and watch as they learn all about the body oragans.
This puzzle is one of my favorites. Bones on one side and organs on the other. It even has every part marked with a number and a section at the base of the puzzle for identification.
