Paper chips and a cotton wool storm

One of the favourite parts of my week is the art class I run for under 5s. I have a cupboard full of materials from sparkly treasure to googly eyes (everyone’s favourite) to plain old lentils, and they all come in handy for sticking projects. Usually I take inspiration from a picture book (after the ‘making’, I read the children a story) and try to tie it in with the activity. Here are a few projects – I’ll post some more soon. I try to keep the projects flexible and as much open to individual interpretation as possible – I really enjoy seeing how differently they come out through young creative eyes and hands. I would love to make an illustrated activity book based on them all some day…
