This activity from our Summer Fun Jar turned out to be much better than I'd hoped.
The idea I presented to the kids was that they could create their very own town or city map on their shower curtains. I expected that they'd create something for their Little People toys or their Hotwheels cars. But this is where the joy of creativity comes in: they each did their own thing. One child did actually draw a map of an imaginary land. But another chose to use his entire shower curtain to draw a detailed blueprint for a medieval castle, a third drew flowers, butterflies, and alphabet letters all over hers, and my preschooler just had fun scribbling all over her curtain without anyone scolding her.
They loved having such a large canvas for their work! And I loved that they spent the entire morning happily coloring without whining or arguing!
Intrepid Murmurings for sharing such an awesome idea!
I hope this brings someone else as much enjoyment as it brought us!
