As an Art Teacher, I have also put together Baby Paint & Play classes for many Community Centres in Vancouver, and have been giving them for the past dozen years.
I am still teaching Paint and Play for 1-4 year olds on Tuesday mornings at False Creek, and on Thursday mornings at Hillcrest Community Centres.
So I have come up with Baby Art Kits that parents & nannies can do at home with the little ones, incorporating everything I do and use in the classes, with complete instructions, scrapbooks, finger paint, stickers, stamps and assorted papers.
Makes for a great gift as well.
Having become a grandmother recently has really been an eye opener to the behaviour of the little ones at home and not just in a class room setting. Our little guy has decided he does not want his teeth brushed anytime at all. Soooooooooo, I came up with the idea of writing a book for him and other like kids about the Incredible Rainbow Toothbrushes, which should and does help them over this hurdle. The book also comes with a rainbow of toothbrushes, one for every day of the week.
