Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience in the learning process. Yesterday we used our imaginations through paper. The children created their own stories, build forts, and also did problem solving. We were fascinated of the stories and characters they came up with. The children also found out that paper can stretch if you pull slowly but can rip if you pull hard.

The children enjoyed making this three day activity (Art Tape). They first created a pattern using tape and scissors while practicing their fine-motor skills. After they created their patterns they mixed a variety of colors to create their own inspired by the colors they had seen on a beetle. Once the paint was dry they removed the tape creating a beautiful art work !
