Baby bottle painting in preschool

in Baby Bottle Painting

Earlier this year, one of our mommies had a new baby and to celebrate with our new “big brother” we had fun with “Baby Day” in our class…

We had all kinds of play going on including some baby bottle painting…

Having a new grandbaby means I have access to a few supplies his mommy no longer needs or never did use so I filled a few bottles with some slightly watered down paint and the children used them to create prints and designs…

The children squeezed the nipple of the bottle to squirt some paint on the paper and they pressed down on the bottle to make dots and blobs…

The bottles were not “squeezable” so the only way to get the paint on the paper was to somehow manipulate the nipple of the bottle. Bottle painting led to some great fine motor work as well as some interesting results in our art experience…

In my next post, I will share with you the rest of the activities we did for baby day. I have some super fun photos to share!

I agree with you. Exposing children to as many possibilities as possible is the way to go with young children. Just because you let them experience something, doesn’t mean that you are promoting bottle feeding. Let’s get serious!

I think the comment was well intentioned – I just had never thought of this process in terms of anything but good fun!
