Picasso’s abstract art

Hello world! We are in the midst of working on a new set of worksheets and activities. While awaiting for the worksheets to be completed, I have created a maths beading board for the little ones. This is what I did the night before while the kids are asleep.

These are the materials for making the beading board. I have cut out a cardboard from a box. Best way to recycle stuffs 😉 As for the beads, those are what I have used to make necklaces in the past!

Voila! Here is the beading board! Colorful isn’t it? You can try making 1 too. Is easy! As for the pipe cleaners, I got it from Daiso.

This morning, as usual, we did our flashcards program where one of the topics was about Picasso. The kids had a brief introduction about Picasso and his few famous paintings. They love looking at his paintings. To tell you the truth, I didn’t know that Picasso was such a strong influential artist till I started my research on him. All I know about him was a painter. He is such an inspiration to me after “knowing” him.

Picasso’s paintings are a great way to teach kids about abstract art. The kids hands started to itch after looking at his beautiful drawings. Immediately, after the lesson about Picasso and abstract art, the kids quickly grabbed their drawing paper and colour pencils and start to get down to work by creating a self portrait in the style of Picasso.

Here they are focusing on their art.

The little one doesn’t like colouring so she proceeds on with the maths beading board while the elder boy finished up his colouring. After he’s done, he joined his sister on the maths beading board.

And here are my little Picasso’s art! Bet you can tell which belongs to who.

My boy even drew another picture behind the page as well.

There goes our morning! Hope you had a great morning and have a great day ahead! Stay tuned for our new fun pack 😉



I am a busy mummy of 2 wonderful kids. Their thirst for learning has made me busy researching and making learning resources/materials for them. Most of the time will be according to the topics that they have requested. Otherwise, I will randomly pick a topic and create the materials for them. Most of the time, the materials will include right brain training as well. From them, I get to learn a lot too! However, material preparation is quite a challenge! It will even be more challenging if you are a working parent! Here, I would love to share what we have done and hope busy parents out there will find our materials useful for their little one. If you have any queries/comments or if you have any topics that you would like to cover with your little one(s), do drop me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I can :) Our mission is to find, discover and reveal the fun of kids learning! Drop us a message if you are interested in any of our materials. Let's make learning fun!
