this little Czech art book. I've learned a thing or two about the way Czechs educate here and have developed a little saying to remind myself of it. It goes a little something like this: It's not just what you teach; it's how you teach it. I don't mean that in the be "nice" or "funny" or "patient" kind of way (all important and beneficial). I mean be clever - the process of getting to that final product should be smart too.
This project is easy-peasy and yet inspirational for all - my 3 year old loved it and my 5 year old was into it too. They were surprised to see how a simple drip of watercolor paint could instantly turn a colored circle into a lovely flower.
