Our sunny days lately have made for some beautiful mornings in the Glenn.
That‘s why we kicked off this school year with nature banners!
As we explore nature in this lesson we also explore the self.
Starting off with a book called Let’s make Faces by Hancock Piven.
We talked about the features on our face and how we could collect items from the garden to create faces on canvass.
Using drawing and painting materials the children created a self portrait and later used the items they collected from nature to incorporate into their art.
The older children created faces with nature and the younger children jumped right into the paint for sensory exploration!
Benji Age: 3 Drawing his face using oil pastels
Penny age: 4 Using leaves from vines and pine needles to create a face
Nora age:4 Using leaves and sticks to make clothes for her happy drawing 🙂
Touch is a significant sense we use every day. Toddlers need to explore their senses to further learn about the world around them.
So much paint and so many giggles!
