Beautiful Stuff! Using Found Objects

As part of our program, we are hoping to use recycled, found materials in our science and art programs. One of our children brought in a large bag filled with objects he had collected from home (e.g., lids, marker caps). We explored them during circle time and looked for similarities and ways to sort them.

The children decided to sort them by colour.

We discussed the different ways colours can look (lighter, darker).

After we sorted the materials, we added them to our colour bins of beautiful stuff.

The objects look so beautiful displayed together!

Please consider keeping a bag nearby in the kitchen so you can save materials that might interest our children. There is a list on the right hand side of our blog if you'd like suggestions for what we need. Thank you for your support of our children and program!
