“Lids, Lids & More Lids” mural in the Art Studio at Main Street Preschool in Tipp city was a school-wide art project this year made from lids & caps collected by all the children as they learned the value of recycling.
The preschool, located at Tipp City United Methodist Church at 3d & Main Streets, opened their Art Gallery for the preschool families & public recently.
Some of it is showcased at Tipp City Public Library through May. The Pre-K class made self portraits. The 4s & 5s sculpted animals and the 3s created caterpillars from recyclables. The 2s made a flower garden from handprints, and the multi-age class constructed life-size characters from “Once Upon a Time” fairy tales and nursery rhymes.
Give your child a gold coin (circle from yellow paper). Have them draw a portrait of themselves on the coin. Glue the coin on a piece of green paper in the shape of a four-leaf clover with a heading like “More Precious Than Gold,” “More Valuable Than Gold,” or “Richer than Gold”
