A Very Colorful Lesson

Infants and toddlers enrolled in LVCC’s center at Liberty High School (Bethlehem) enjoyed an afternoon of body painting with their parents and teachers. Wearing only a diaper, the children were encouraged to crawl through the safe, washable tempera paint and onto large sheets of paper. Children who are not yet able to crawl were able to explore this activity with the help of parents and teachers, who gently placed the child’s hands and feet in the paint and then pressed them onto the paper. Not only does the activity support Pennsylvania’s early learning standards, but more specifically, the colorful lesson gives children a great way to experiment, learn cause and effect and discover different colors.
