Scratched art peacock and rainbow butterfly

This week, during the art lesson with Teacher Huiyi, we have completed 2 drawings. To me is doing a black and white drawing because the scratched art is with black background and the butterfly is with white but later painted with rainbow colours.

First, the smarties made the scratched art. They started making colourful background with patterns. If you have not realised it, the patterning really is therapeutic. It calms the person down and draws the person’s attention onto it without the person realising it. Yes, the smarties spent quite some time working on this quietly without any noise. They just keep working on it before they realised is completed. Just this background work alone took them 1.5hrs.

During the next lesson, they started scratching. The theme for this is peacock. Both were having fun scratching the image out but as it requires quite a bit of strength, mei mei took multiple breaks before she got it completed.

There were still some time left and so Teacher Huiyi had the kids worked on another art and craft. The smarties were to make a rainbow painting. The smarties are always free to choose to do it horizontally or vertically.

Once completed, drawing started followed by cutting and adding glitters. The theme for this is butterfly. The cutting of the butterfly was quite a challenge for mei mei especially on the antenna as the area was really small. She was so worried of cutting off the antenna of the butterfly and “hurting” it.

Taadaa! Their little rainbow butterflies. I am so going to hang this up in their playroom as a decoration. Awesome! 🙂

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!
