Kicking off summer at preschool with a friendship mural

Each class at preschool kicked off the summer with a large group friendship mural…

Every mural was different…

A large group mural is a great way to promote friendship. As the children participated in making their murals they talked with each other and spent time working together side-by-side to achieve a common goal…

Some of the murals invited individual creativity as well…

The next time you are looking for a way to foster new friendships, set out lots of different materials and let your children make a mural together….

Here are a few ideas for murals you can try out over the summer…

Bottle cap mural from Lines, Dots, and Doodles

Hand and fingerprint mural from Putti Prapancha

Painting a Mural from Chasing Cheerios

Shadow Murals from Atelierista

    How fun and pretty! I love the handprint rainbow. When Little J’s was in preschool, they made one where the kids used spray bottles of watered down paint to paint a white sheet. Then they “signed” the sheet.

      That would be a wonderful keepsake!
