Here’s a creative group art idea from Danielle Monroy, who own and operates Creative Care for Children in Santa Barbara.
Let Danielle’s children inspire you to take advantage of the final stretches of summer weather with messy art in the great outdoors.
Stir together and serve with a smile!
Reports Danielle: Some of the great things about this project? It was a truly cooperative activity - it only works when everyone works together and the more they do, the more giggles are produced!
During outdoor play sometimes children need more large motor play. This is a wonderful large motor activity that includes art, collaboration and concentration!
Danielle and I will be co-presenting on Science and Sensory Play at the CAEYC conference in April 2014. We’re calling it STEM to STEAM – combining art and science in the early childhood classroom. We’ll post new handouts on that topic on the blog here, so you can also try them out. Stay tuned, and thanks for checking in! It’s a pleasure staying connected with people like you who actively explore new ideas and embrace their own creativity.
