Concept Painting

Concept Sensory Painting by Crayon Box Chronicles (Contributor Post @ All For The Boys)

We’re so excited to announce our new collaboration with Allison at All For The Boys! We’ll be regularly sharing a variety of fun and educational posts on her blog.  As a new contributor, we’ll start with a series called Teaching Concepts.

The first in our series is pre number concepts, discussing the differences between big and small.  Understanding basic concepts helps strengthen a child’s vocabulary and builds early mathematical skills.  Instead of using traditional paper and pencil, we combined sensory materials with a fun twist – squishy toys and glowing neon paint!

For the full activity, see Concept Sensory Painting at All For The Boys blog.
