Nature Self Portraits
This afternoon the children did an activity where they had to collect nature elements and create a portrait of their choice. It was a great opportunity for the children to practice their communication skills and socialise with different children, as well as building on their awareness of their environment and sustainability.
In this activity the children experimented with object and creative play by manipulating the artistic utensils and nature elements to create the portrait. This activity helped them to use their fine motor skills by manipulating different objects. They successfully communicated with each other by using their manners to ask for the glue and using their PAWS by showing respect to their peers and the environment. The children enjoyed scavenging for leaves of different shapes and used sustainable thinking by collecting leaves that had already fallen from the trees and long grass. This activity was easy to complete by a range of ages and all children creatively represented themselves in their nature self portraits.
