Full Body Stamping

Recently we were stamping on the art table. I watched C as he worked with his stamps.

He reached over across the table to the green stamp pad.

And then reached across to stamp on his paper.

I watched him to it over and over.

"You can move your paper closer the stamp pad," I said. "Or move the stamp pad closer to you."

"No, that's okay," he said.

I think he liked the movement as much as the stamping. Maybe because he's a boy and needs that movement element. Maybe he just needed to stretch his body. Whatever the reason, full body stamping seemed like great fun.

Sometimes you just need to use your whole body in learning.


  1. Haha - I suggested to a child this morning that she stand instead of sit to do an activity but she just ignored my idea! Shows how much I know!

  2. My suggestions are ignored all the time. Who do we think we are trying to tell the children how they should play/learn/interact. Another lightbulb moment Scott?
