One of our preschool pals came by one afternoon for a play date with Monkey and she ended up standing at my coffee table with one of my very loved (aka scratched beyond belief) acrylic mirrors and a dry erase marker. Since I was sitting on the couch chatting with said preschool pal's totally amazing Mama, I was feeling too lazy to get up and retrieve a white board and suggested that she use the marker on the mirror. Voila! Reflection Writing was born!
For the next few days, I set out the mirrors and markers together to see what would happen. A few of the kiddos tried it out, but Monkey really jumped in head-first.
I've seen some great advancements in his drawing and writing lately, and he's been very into suns, faces, people and his name, so the mirror just provided a new canvas for his current interests.
Sun + face = awesome!!
And erasing is just as much fun!!
What creative uses have you found for mirrors or dry erase markers??
