Painting a Very Hungry Caterpillar in N1 & N2

Today we heard the story of a “Very Hungry Caterpillar”. What did he eat on Monday?, How many pears did he eat on Tuesday?. The very hungry caterpillar ate every day and then became a beautiful butterfly.

Now it´s time to draw our friend the Caterpillar. It was so fun to do it with balloons.


Painting with feathers

Have you ever tried painting with feathers?
Children love everything about feathers from the colours to how they feel all soft and fluffy.

It´s nice to explore with the things in our environment and that´s exactly what they did. The children in Nursery 1 explored by using the feathers to paint with. By swirling and mixing the different types of paint, they were able to create different patterns and textures.

Painting strengthens fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination so open up a bag of feathers and have fun!
