With the very chilly mornings, cool evenings, and as the last leaves on the trees fall to the ground, we are reminded that winter has arrived.
Therefore, our theme for this week – Winter!
Our field workers and teachers have been very busy keeping our children busy, motivated and learning.
On our home visits this week, the children were presented with some creative resources from Die Sterreweg which included, among other items, some wonderful art materials. Painting is so much fun!
What is synonymous with winter and keeping warm? Fire. The children were encouraged to use the packs given to them as well as finding additional mediums at home to complete their pictures and to give them depth.
Doing art promotes creativity, confidence and also improves fine motor skills. Having to go out and find the additional mediums encourages problem solving and innovation.
Just look at the beautiful art works that we were presented with!
