Our children are very crafty and are always looking to use their creativity to create something beautiful.
By giving the children the opportunity to choose the materials that they will use, creates a sense of independence for the younger children. The materials used by the children to decorate included; coloured paper, coffee takeaway cups, paddle pop sticks, pieces of AstroTurf and coloured pencils. We worked on harnessing our creativity and used our fine motor skills to construct gorgeous paper flowers, and while some children displayed their flowers in the OSHC room, others decided to take them home to give to someone special in their family. This activity also allowed us to reflect on our contribution to sustaining our environment as we were able to use recycled paper and re purpose other materials like the paper coffee cups as vases. This helps us to reduce our waste levels at OSHC and look after our environment.
