Those with preschoolers who want to use Barry Stebbing's art courses should start with Baby Lambs. It features lessons on numbers, letters, and counting in addition to drawing and basic color theory. (There are a couple of addition and subtraction problems that might be beyond most preschoolers.) Also, there are also a few cut-and-paste craft activity pages plus ABC's with Scripture. The collection of activities in this book is a bit eclectic. I wish it were more concentrated simply on art activities.
Art supplies needed are a set of colored pencils, a drawing pencil, scissors, glue, and a set of washable colored markers. You will also need a brush if you want children to learn to blend with the markers although a brush is not included in the list of essentials. The book comes with five heavy, cardstock cards to be used with the colored markers.
The Baby Lambs Special includes a book, a set of 8 colored markers, and a brush for blending—instruction on how to do this is in the book.
Many Scripture verses, retellings of biblical stories, and other Christian references make this resource appropriate for Christian families.
