Art works with the youngest group (2,5 – 3.5 years)
in kindergarden are always a great challenge.
Children of this age don’t have well developed
fine motor skills, and the possibilities of different
art techniques are reduced to a minimum.
However, there are ways that kids learn about different materials and techniques, while still get great art work.
Paper jams have a positive effect on the development
of motor skills of hands, but also the development
of tactile sensitivity. This is one of the first actions that the child meets the formatting of the paper. In addition, it feels great joy, especially if the adult is involved in this “game”.
Especially delight for kids occurs when they dipped wrinkled paper in tempera and put it out on the surface. A child at this age is ecstatic when he or she transferred imprint of finger, hand or foot to paper. Stamping can be used for anything that is in the children’s proximity. In this way it meets the tempera as the art material. Here’s how it is achieved in practice.
Material for work:
- paper (old newspapers are best)
To obtain the background, children dipped sponges in tempera and coated paper. Imprinting yellow tempera with wrinkled paper flowers will be a sunflower.
The stems were obtained by withdrawing the brush lines on paper, and placing the palm leaves. The core of sunflower, kids will make with wrinkled paper which was dipped in black and printed on yellow flowers.
Paint of sunflower field is finished!!! For every teacher in school and preschool organisation of group art work of this type is always a challenge. But, when you know what to do, everything is easy. Fall does not have to be boring for children, even if it rains outside – you can make group art work with fall theme.
