The town Christmas lights come on today so I thought it was a good day to get started on our Christmas crafts. The decorations were decorated and customised beautifully - I want some on my tree! Snow man glitter playdough was a big hit - the range of showmen created was fantastic. It's also a fantastic craft to continue with at home. I'm looking forward to more Christmas crafting next week!
Brrrrr! We met arctic and Antarctic wildlife today who live in the ice and snow. Using snow (shaving foam) and paint we created a snow storm for a sweet little penguin picture. The art explorers also loved creating snowy homes out of white glitter playdough for polar animals. #art #craft #lesson #Sevenoaks
I love this beautiful colourful owl story which was todays inspiration for our class. I think the owl would have certainly said WOW if it had seen the fantastic art works created! The card scraper art was particularly popular and pretty easy to continue with at home. Just make sure you place some newspaper down under your paper to scrape the colour off onto or your table may be looking rather colourful! #owl #art #craft #Sevenoaks
It was recently my daughters 7th birthday and she requested an arty party, so I got to work with plaster of paris and made some gorgeous fairy houses for a painting session. The children all loved painting and glittering together and it made for a lovely calm party. Here are some of their finished creations. If you think an arty crafty party would be fun for your child do get in touch! #party #art #craft
Whiz, pop, bang! Today we celebrated bonfires night and Diwali with salty water colour fireworks, gorgeous rice rangowli patterns, glittery firework paintings and super sparkly play dough! If you missed out today the class is running again on Monday morning - so come and get glittered! If you would like to make the coloured rice at home to create more rangowli patterns it very simple. You need to mix 1 cup of white rice with some bright food colouring and a teaspoon of vinega
