Play, Painting Games: The Weekly Kids Co-Op


First impressions count. I remember visiting various preschools in my search for a suitable one for Mr N and M. I watched kids play. I looked around the classroom. I inspected the outdoor play grounds. One of the things that convinced me that one particular preschool was the one for Mr N and M, was the smell of paint. That first impression of an engaged environment, I remember to this day. I loved being welcomed by that lovely scent of paint!

Paint is such a therapeutic medium. I still think of it as such a treat when I get to paint. It’s little wonder kids enjoy playing with paint too.
