We love giving children opportunity to express themselves creatively and get messy. The following pics show children being provided with open-ended materials and encouraged to seek out more materials that they want. They have been given a sample and then encouraged to explore, create, and extend.
Fine-motor activity with eye-droppers and dried-up markers in water.
Exploring repetition in art with swirls of wind and silhouette trees.
Creating designs and patterns with Christmas lights.
Exploring print-making with forks and corks.
A kinder brought in this book and independently followed instructions to create their piece. Exciting to see them bump into literacy, math, and procedure while self-selecting their learning.
