|You'll need small pieces of paper, some paper clips or poster tack, washable paint and a salad spinner.|
|After you clip or stick your paper inside the spinner, add some paint and a few marbles or similar objects. See if your students can figure out how to place the lid on the spinner--possibly a challenging task?|
|Sometimes the paint spread in a splatter and sometimes it looked more like thick streaks of color.|
|It will take several hours for the paint to dry before we can string the pieces to make a garland. |
The rectangular pieces will be cut into egg shapes before stringing.
|Each trial was different, making the activity all the more interesting.|
Fine pinch to use the paperclips
Practicing use of augmentative communication for choosing which shapes and colors to use
Tolerance of paint smell and texture
Maintaining grasp on plunger and using sufficient force to press it down
We're on Spring Break next week--yippee! I'll be remembering Good Friday and looking for the glory on Easter morning!
