Shadow art continued...

The silhouette paiting we did the other week (inspired by the artwork on the square) has continued today... this time focussing on birds and balloons... most children chose to cut out a balloon. This was an opportunity to use scissors - something I see a great interest in, but not always very focussed... so the children were challenged with cutting along the lines...

Some children made fringes around the balloon shape, other cut round, some on the line carefully, others at high speed and just a little distance from the line...
Just one of the 11 children choose to cut out a more complicated bird... but when she got going she inspired another child to have a go...
One child could not stop cutting and her balloon disappeared into shreds...

Afterwards we went out to look at the artwork again pointing out the birds and the people... and there was a mention that we need to draw a cat...

Two weeks left to National Preschool Day and our Exhibition on the Square... can't wait..



but first a trip to Canada...
