Let's create!

Being creative with different resources allows children to use their imagination and express themselves, whilst trying out new ideas. They can experiment with colour and texture, and develop their sense of touch and observation skills. Often we focus on the process and not the product, and at times it can get a little messy!

Sometimes the creative table gets really messy! Here the children are mixing rice and paint, and using brushes, spreaders and spoons. They added the coloured dobbers too. 

Messy fun

Who’s been eating my porridge?

We provided porridge oats and water for the children to mix...great, simple, messy play! Different sized jugs, bowls and spoons add a maths element to the play.

We provided loom bands and geo boards for the children to create shapes and patterns. Great for concentration and developing their finger control.

A simple outdoor threading activity. We made holes in card and drew stalks. The children threaded flowers on the holes. Great for developing fine motor skills 🌼

Collaborative Art

Sometimes we work together on a piece of art. The children enjoyed creating a garden based on the book of Lois Ehlert “Planting a Rainbow”

Transient art butterflies.

Transient art means non-permanent. The resources can be used over and over in lots of different ways. We used the different resources to decorate butterflies. No glue allowed!
