Hi all,

My daughter, Riley, is still just four years old so my curriculum is based more around storytimes, play, and helping her to learn to socialize. I wanted to share a fun art project I like because it helps with her hand eye coordination as well as motor skills which are still developing.

I borrow my husbands mini projector and we project stencils of drawings against butcher paper taped to the wall. Riley, likes to trace the outlines first and then colors it in after. It really encourages her while giving her a sense of symmetry and a blue print for drawing.

I know some people may have issues with technology (I sure do ) but this AAXA LED projector is so simple to use, Riley likes to turn it on sometimes to let me know she wants to draw.

Anyways, just to keep discussion going, I would love to hear of any other fun art projects you all have cooked up at home

Welcome!! I saw your introduction and was just coming to start a thread to welcome you, but I'll just say so here. Where are you from? Do you have any questions (other than help finding out what the homeschool laws are)?

I love the projector idea. We have several people at church who use this all the time. I don't have a projector, so I've never tried it, but I've always wanted to.

Thank you for the warm welcome! I think my main thing I wanted help with was deciding the pro's and cons of going preschool or staying home school. I thought this forum would be a great source of inspiration.

Is there a government website where I can reference homeschool standards for California?

Welcome!! The best place to go and learn about your state laws is: HSLDA | Home School Laws
I used to love doing stuff with projectors!

Here's another good HS link for CA. http://homeschoolingincalifornia.com/

Personally, I don't see any pro's for sending a child to preschool. I know some people give the socialization argument, but I don't buy that unless you live in a secluded area and don't have any other social interactions throughout the week. Study after study shows that HS kids are better socialized than PS kids.
