Creativity is so important for young children
It can help children to:
make sense of the world around them
explore their emotions
help children express themselves
enhance their wellbeing.
At Rachel Keeling our core provision includes painting, dancing, music, sculpture, construction and woodwork as just a few examples of ways children can explore creativity.
Over recent weeks, children have been developing skills in colour mixing using powder paints. The have learned the process, practising it and returning to access with more independence. Children have worked alone, in pairs and collaboratively with an adult to develop skills and confidence.
Many children now independently selecting their paper, apron, brush, palette and pot of water and then remembering the process:
What is wonderful to watch is children beginning to use the colour wheels independently and the primary colours to decide which secondary colours they would like to create.
Some children are now creating frames from offcuts of wood, joining them, painting and embellishing them.
Do you express yourself creatively? Dancing, singing, cooking, painting, drawing or writing?
