Recycled items from around the home & garden can be turned into sculptures with a little imagination. The value of a child’s art lies in the ‘doing’ not the end result.
Use cereal boxes, yoghurt pottles, egg cartons, paper towel tubes and other waste /recyclable material to create animals, buildings, people or a freeform sculpture. Explore the garden for sticks and leaves.
Rolled up paper and cellotape can also be used to create figures and freeform sculptures. Let your imagination run free!
Gluing and sticking help to develop small muscle control and hand-eye co-ordination. Being involved in a creative activity is great form developing problem solving skills as well as their imagination.
