Week 1 in the books! so excited to be putting some art on our beautiful art wall. i have been stepping outside of my ocd world this year and it's opening up so many more opportunities for the kiddos to make amazing creations! i've been thoroughly inspired by @prekwolfpack and purchased alllllll the washi tape. i was also gifted a big tub o' randomness (i.e. confetti, gems, stickers) from my mama. the kids have been coloring, drawing, glueing, tying, taping, and creating masterpieces all week. can't wait to see what they come up with next week!
It’s flamingo friday! love how these turned out. used leftover pink paper plates from our valentines day celebration last year! the kids really enjoyed ripping and crinkling for the issue paper for the flamingos feathers. our zoo theme is finally complete! #zootheme#prek#prekart#spedteacher#spedclassroom#lifeinabaprek
✨my top 8 art supplies ✨ .
if you watched the tour of my art tower then you would definitely know i have a slight love for all of the art supplies 🤗 but guess what?! i found out so many of you do too! the amount of messages i received asking where you can purchase “all of the things” was amazing! i don’t want to overwhelm anyone though by suggesting it all so i thought we should start off with a few of my favorites...my go-to’s on a daily basis!
1️⃣ liquid chalk markers by chalktastic!
can be used on almost any surface including slime 🙌🏼 purchased an 8 pack from @amazon for $13.97! mine have lasted a whole school year and continue to pump out chalk like they are brand new.
2️⃣ neon oil pastels by @crayola
shop around for these because sometimes they are a great deal on amazon, but a lot of the time michaels has a buy one get one 50% off on all crayola products.
3️⃣ liquid watercolor by colorations ( @discountschoolsupply ) everyone needs a set of these! even if you just buy the primary colors you will not regret it. probably one of the most versatile art supplies out there. a little goes a long way and you can dilute them with plain old water to stretch your dollar as well! potion making, colored rice, oil pastel resist painting, dying play-dough..the list can go on and on!
pack of 6- 4oz each- $15.99
4️⃣ ikea mala kids paint brushes 🖌
the best brushes i have ever used in my classroom. they do not rust, break apart where the wood and metal meet and they wash easily! i have tried every type of paintbrush imaginable and none of them hold up like these. i purchased this set (6 in a pack) at ikea, but you can also purchase on ikeas website or on amazon.
5️⃣ @kwikstixpaint tempera paint sticks
if you’ve been following me for a while you already know my love for this product. on any given day you could walk into my classroom and a kwik stix will be in some littles hand making magic. the paint dries in 90 seconds!
i have purchased from amazon, hobby lobby and target so shop around for the best deal.
6️⃣ washi tape
so many uses for it in the classroom by students and teachers! always great deals @michaelsstores .

I am loving our tile legacy walls in the children’s bathrooms. the children of island lutheran preschool have been creating these beautiful works of art since 2009. their parents donated the tiles. 👩🏽🎨🎨👨🏻🎨
