Leaving the Creativity to the Children - 3 Year Old & 4 Year Old Classes

Here at the preschool we emphasis the importance of process and creativity, whether  that be learning how to hang up a coat and bag or taking a snack out of a bag. It’s a stepping stone to a child’s confidence to independence. Learning the self help skills at an early age allows children to take on new challenges with confidence.



 
 
  
We put out materials for the children to create snow people, the children made their own creation with the help of big buddies

 

 


We did a science experiment with milk, food coloring and dish soap. The children were curious how the colors blended as they added the dish soap. Many of the children needed to repeat the experiment as they wanted to understand what caused the colors to mix or maybe they just enjoyed watching the pattern the colors made.
 

 


 
 
Inspiration Art is exactly that and the children got busy to create with the picture they were inspired by.

 




Children will often be found at the drawing table making their own creations sometimes asking for tape to hang their artwork in the classroom.

We had the pleasure of a parent musician play his guitar throughout the morning and the children were able to play too! Thank you Chuck for teaching us about the guitar and what it's like to be a professional musician. 

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
