First Art: Art Experiences for Toddlers and Twos.
Kohl, MaryAnn F.; Ramsey, Renee; Bowman, Dana
Acknowledging that toddlers and 2-year-olds explore art as a learning experience or an experiment and are more interested in "doing" art than in making a finished product, this guide for caregivers compiles 75 art experiences, with over 100 variations, and tips for making the activities run smoothly. Following an introduction that includes directions on using the guide and preparations, the activities are organized by media as follows: (1) "Primarily Paint"; (2) "Hands on Dough"; (3) "Making Marks"; (4) "Sticky Business" (paste and paper); and (5) "Great Impressions" (printing and stamping). The final chapter, "Fun Stuff for Toddlers and Twos," includes art related projects, such as a mini chalkboard and an art frame for the refrigerator. The activities are indexed by alphabet, materials, and icons (e.g., activity level, group, outdoors, etc.). (HTH)
