Baby’s First Marks! Using sidewalk chalk and water on construction paper to encourage our baby’s 1st mess-less, creative explorations
Today we are going to introduce our infants to their first art experience using the most simple and basic materials. In your kit you will receive a few pieces of sidewalk chalk (non-toxic and big enough to not be a choking hazard), a paint brush and some colourful construction paper. Chalk shows up great on the construction paper! And so does water! Use the paintbrush dipped in a bowl of water to “paint” on the construction paper. It will leave a visible dark brush mark that will dry out after a while, making it the ideal mess-free baby art activity.
– Register with us by April 7 to receive a kit full of arts and crafts supplies that include the materials needed for this activity. To register for an activity kit, just email Mehmet at [email protected]. Mehmet will arrange a time for you to pick up your activity kit from 180 Shaw St or make other arrangements with you for pick-up from another site.
For children aged newborn to 15 months. Join us for songs, rhymes & activities to do with your baby, listen and interact with guest speakers on parenting and self-care, meet other parents with babies and access resources & referrals.
