They covered several large pieces of white paper with the prints until there was no paper left showing through. They added a few large circle prints on top using a cardboard tube, to create big bubbles too.
Then C requested to do hand prints, as always, so we used some green paint to make hand print sea-weed and some pink to make some little fish.
Pop enjoyed swishing her hands and fingers in the paint and finger painting, printing and general mess-making!
C filled sheet after sheet with her green and pink hand prints. I think she would do this activity all day every day if she could!
When they were all dry I cut around them and together we stuck the green ones onto the sea scape to make the sea weed. Then C placed all the little fish on and added googly eyes to finish them off!
- creative: learning how to lift prints from found materials, layering, range of mixed media, colour mixing
- numeracy: sing 1,2,3,4,5 Once I caught a Fish Alive!, count the fish/ sea weed, talk about shapes
- sensory: explore the feeling of cold wet paint between fingers, sticking
- motor skills: fine motor control placing small items and using tools, steadily print and lift with bubble wrap
- phse: work together on a collaborative project, sustain interest and involvement in a project over a number of days/ sessions
