Creative Expression Group Activity: Under the Ocean
Oh wow! It’s been a while since I have written. I think I might have forgotten how this goes, but I’m back ladies and gentlemen. I now have a full class and we have been doing lots of fun activities and this week for the Early Education theme we are talking Oceans.
My class did a group creative expression a few weeks ago that they still go and visit on the wall every day. This project works on Fine Motor Skills, Creative Expression, Spacial Recognition, and Social Interactions, and Self- Regulation. Once the artwork is done and up on display, it leads to Dramatic Play.
During our Under The Sea Theme week we made our own Ocean for the kids come back to daily and that encourages a conversation amongst themselves, their parents, and the teachers.
- Under Sea Creatures Stickers
- Large roll of paper
- Tape the large piece of blue paper to a table or wall.
- Give each child a marker in shades of green and blue and let them make marks on the paper
- Once they are done with making marks start handing out stickers and let the kids put their ocean creatures in the ocean.
Once we were done with the picture I put it in a frame that we have down low for the kids to see. This was the best part of it because the next morning they walked into a surprise of their group art on the wall and they engaged their parents and each other in conversation about what made and the creatures that they put in their ocean. Right now they trace the waves that they made with their fingers and they like to pretend that they are under the sea with the fish and whales.
I hope that you all enjoyed. I am glad to be back. I hope that I will have the time to share more activities with you all because I really miss each and everyone, my readers.
