This month has been going great here at Kidstreet, everybody has their hands into some kind of creative work.
In Sue's Wednesday Toddler Multimedia class this past week, students made nests by pushing their thumbs into a ball of clay to make a little bowl, then using the garlic press to make texture for the nests. If you turn the bowl over, you can make a birthday cake! It was messy, but as you can see, they turned out pretty well.
The multimedia classes are really fun because we learn how to create with many different media, not just clay. Roz's Thursday multimedia class gets to pick which weeks they want to work with clay and what other media they want to use. We talked about doing mosaics one week, painting, collage, and even shrinky-dink! It should be fun, I'll let everyone know what we end up doing!
The Kidstreet blog will be updated more frequently now that classes are in full swing, and I think I will start posting ideas for creative projects that everybody - kids, parents, teachers, the dog - can do at home. Because creativity doesn't just happen in classroom!! It's everywhere!
