Description/Summary

  • Set up the large paper on an easel, the floor or a table depending on what your family prefers.
  • Invite your child to paint what she feels when she thinks about speaking in your language.
  • Let her interpret what that looks like and just let her create.
  • Feel free to put on some music in your language in the background to set the mood and paint.
  • If you have the space join in and do the same.
  • If time allows talk about the paintings afterwards and let her tell you a bit about what she was feeling.
