Mommy, Monet and Me!: Letter A

Today was our first day of Mommy, Monet and Me! and it was great.  We had so many new faces, and great art activities.  We made apple prints, and aquarium pictures. 

Apple prints

Materials: Apples (sliced in half), paint, and paper

This is a great fall activity for toddlers.  Simply dip the apples in paint and stamp them onto paper.  Cut the apples in different ways, vertically, and horizontally. This activity works best when you have a couple paint colors, and spread the paint in a thin layer.  We used red and yellow paint.


Materials: Blue, green and brown construction paper, glue sticks, foam shapes, and markers.

We used blue paper as our background.  Then students ripped brown and green paper to add sand and seaweed to their aquarium.  Next, children used foam shapes to create brightly colored fish.  Then they used our dot paint and markers to add bubbles and other details. 

I love this activity because it has some structure and clear steps, but also allows kids to be creative.  The finished product was fantastic and every aquarium was unique. 

Next week the Letter B: Bubble, Bracelets and Butterflies

Mommy, Monet and Me! is a mom and tot art class that is held every Monday from 9:00-10:00 am.  For more information call 801.491.0825 or visit our website
