Roll the Numbers and Match!

We introduced another fun math game that encourages subitizing to our children. 

They had the choice of either using my game card or making their own (which encouraged number writing too).

The purpose of the game is to roll as many dice as you want and then match the dice to the corresponding numeral on the game card. 

So roll....

...and match!

So easy and so much fun! Another hands-on way to encourage children to practise writing and recognizing numbers!

Mixed Media Art

Today we encouraged the children to combine drawing and painting. Using permanent markers they first drew an outline of a picture...

...and then filled it in with watercolours. 

The results? Beautiful!

Colour Dropping

The children have been interested in mixing 'potions' so we put out our favourite colour drop activity. 

Painting on Foil

Our children love to paint. We offered them a new surface to paint on by using foil as our surface.

Fresh Flower Still Life

We wanted to forget about the cold so we placed fresh flowers at the art center today and invited the children to draw a still life using pastels. 

Each piece of art a unique interpretation of what they see!
