Now it’s time for the children to go to work. They can start off by colouring in the birds, and then continue by decorating the bird house with the adhesive figures. Cut out the birds; then let the children paste one bird to the...

Craft tip Snowmen

| 2015 January 19

Let the children make a footprint with white finger paint on sheets with different colours. Use a large, black felt tip pen to draw a beanie, arms, eyes, and the buttons of a jacket. Then switch to a red pen and add a cheerful bow; complete the drawing by adding a carrot nose with an orange felt tip pen. Combine the drawings to create a colourful parade of snowmen.

Once you have done 2/3 bands, use the felt tips to colour in the exposed wipe. Sometimes you may have gaps of wipe showing through the wrapped rubber band. Colour this also. When all of the exposed wipe above the last band is coloured, carefully snip off the...

Craft tip Drawing emotions

| 2015 January 05

Discuss emotions with the class. What emotions are there? Ask the children what these emotions feel like? Do they feel nice or horrible? What is their favourite emotion? Then ask the children to choose one emotion and draw or paint what they think that emotion looks like. Get them to think about what kind of colour that emotion might be. When the children have made their pictures, compare those pictures which portray the same emotion. Do the pictures have similarities? Discuss the kinds of colours we associate with emotion (red = anger, green = jealousy, white = peace etc.). Does any of these colours appear in the children’s pictures? Materials...
