Leave art and imagination

Last week we went to a playground for some sun and fun. On our way home, we found some big, brown but nice autumn look-alike leaves on the ground. We picked some back home as I have some art work plans for them using the beautiful leaves.

Today, we took out the leaves and craft materials, having the plan to do leave stamping with the kids.

But my little decision makers rejected my idea and suggested to do it in another way. They pasted their leaves on the drawing paper, used the comb and toothbrush, and started spraying water colours on the paper.

They have been “spraying” the colours for quite some time but they can’t get it all over the page. Instead, the colours were all over the table! I quickly spread the newspaper around the area to prevent further damage done. The next moment, they started using the toothbrush to brush the colours on the paper around the leave.

Want to check out their final product? Taaa-daaah! What does it look like? I don’t see any picture or drawing of the leaves though but for my preschooler, at least I do see the shape of the leaf there. As for my little one…. more of an abstract art to me.  I asked them what is the drawing about and they replied me: “This is art! Don’t have to be anything!” Great answer, huh!

The art lesson really open up their imagination. Before I know it, they started their ride in their imaginative space shuttle heading to space. Alright, I have to go join them on a journey to the space too! See ya!

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!
