Yesterday we asked the children what was the meaning of Art?

The children learned that art can come in many different ways including toys and sculptures the children mentioned. The children then made their own meaning of art by making a sculpture out of foil paper.
Everyone was looking “Posh” a fancy word the children learn that means fancy. The children learned a some fancy words and practice them everyday for our fancy tea Part. They learned how to curtsy and say Merci”. All of our friends were really excited about the party. They choose a book to be read to them “Fancy Nancy”. The children couldn’t wait to drink their tea with their pinkies up. After eating their yummy chocolate dipped strawberries the children took pictures with Fancy accessories in the hugging booth. Love was then shared when passing each other their wonderful Valentines Day Cards!
The children learned a new technique for painting and used new tools to paint using their feet wrapped in bubble wrap. The children made it into a game of who can take off their shoes the fatsest and wrap their feet in bubble. The fun part of this activity was that there was no instructions to go with this activity and the children were able to express themselves in a fun way. The children loved hearing the bubble wrap pop while leaving a circles all around the paper!
