We made spilt milk in preschool

The book titled “It Looked Like Spilt Milk” by Charles G. Shaw has always been one of my favorite books to share in preschool. Today, the children read the book then we made spilt milk pictures…

In one of our classes, the children used a bottle filled with white paint to make their pictures. The children simply squirted the paint onto the paper. I think the paint had been watered down a bit…

This proved to be a good exercise in learning how to control the flow of the liquid…

Some of the children did really well at controlling the flow of the paint and others ended up with puddles!

In another class, the children spooned their paint on the paper instead of squeezing it out of a bottle…

The paint used for this approach was a mix of glue and paint poured into a small cup…

Some children used their spoons to drip the paint strategically around their paper…

And others preferred to make a puddle of milk…

Both approaches offered great opportunities for exploring and managing the painting process…

Here is a simple song that I made up to go with this book…

The cloud up in the sky

Has a shape I recognize

It looks like a (bear) up in the air

Slowly drifting by!

Change the word bear to other shapes!
