This week at Baldivis South we have further extended on the children’s interest in painting.  

We have set up a group painting experience in the outdoor area for the children to work collaboratively on painting on a vertical surface.  

The use of larger vertical surfaces allows children to use bigger arm movements that encourage strength and flexibility throughout the joints and muscles of the upper extremities.  

Even the hand gets a boost of strengthening as it works against gravity to keep making vertical, horizontal and diagonal line.
