ART PLAY is up and running

I’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came to the first ART PLAY session this week! It was great to see everyone, and to watch the kids get busy cutting, drawing, painting and making together.

This week we had three stations. First we practiced our fine motor skills, listening to instructions and working in groups by making life-sized paper people. We used scissors, glue, masking tape, coloured paper, markers and crayons to cut out shapes, trace around each other, and decorate our portraits.

Then we moved onto the communal painting table, where we experimented with mixing colours and manipulating paint with different brushes and sponges, swirlers and spotters.

And we ended up at a dinosaur themed playdough table filled with invitations to play. Which was so much fun that we totally lost track of the time!

We can’t wait to do it all again next Tuesday.
