Why the Term Messy Art Misses the Mark for Me

PurplePaintConcentrate

  I can’t recall ever having referred to children’s art experiences primarily as messy art. It is certainly an accurate description, as they do tend to get messy if the medium allows for it.   The term, however, doesn’t connect to children’s art, exploratory or otherwise, for me. Most often, when I watch children play […]

The Value of Repeated Art Experiences: Gluing Again!

MixingGlue

  As I admitted to the first time I offered Greysen glue, I was unsure how best to set up this material so that her learning would continue. I was fairly confident that she would enjoy gluing again, but how should I set things up to provoke a sort of next-step learning experience?   In […]

Choosing Preschool Programs

Child Led Group

It can all be summed up in a single question posed to me by a mom while we were spending a lovely morning at our community garden, “Why did you go?”   This February will mark two years since I was employed on-site in an early childhood center – AKA, preschool.   In my time […]

First Foods Minus the Cereal

Avocado

Our little family hoorayed for Moon’s six-month birthday with an avocado party last month. That is, Mike, Greysen and I all shared a bowl of guacamole as Moon took her first taste of solid food – avocado! We were all excited for Moon to join the rest of us in a daily experience that we […]

Cellophane Lenses: Simple Toys for Shared Experiences

DSC_5905

  The educators of Reggio Emilia understand that children are embedded in relationships, with their families, peers, and the world around them.   With this principle in mind, I am always on the lookout for playthings that support relationships both with the material itself and also with others. These homemade toys are a great way […]

Stereotyped Clothing

Close_up_sleeve

Snarky t-shirts or play-on-words commentary clothing is nothing new. In fact, I think I may have even worn a button or two in my teen years with a less-than-polite statement. I haven’t really given it much thought with regards to my daughter’s clothing because its not something that I have encountered yet; well, until now. […]

Infant Play with Bottles . . . Maybe Light & Color

bluebottles

“The craving for colour is a natural necessity just as for water and fire. Colour is a raw material indispensable to life. At every era of his existence and his history, the human being has associated colour with his joys, his actions and his pleasures.” – Frenand Leger, “On Monumentality and Color”, 1943. Inspired by […]

Clay or Playdough for Infants?

_DSC1883_2

Recently, Moon used clay for the first time! As excited as I was for her to use clay, I was admittedly just as excited for Greysen to have a regular play partner aside from me. Moon has just started to show interested in how her sister plays, so I thought, let’s pull the clay out […]

Playing With Paper

cello1

Paper is often overlooked as an art medium in the early years. Paper gets more credit in product-oriented artistic efforts, such as origami, but is given barely a nod in process-oriented art.   Paper, as anyone who has ever painted will tell you, is key to making sure children’s ideas spring to life! Poor paper […]

Trusting in Exploratory Play: First Experiences with Glue

glue1

With the toddler art group on hiatus until we are able to find a suitable place to hold it these wintery months, I decided to step back to look at Greysen’s art experiences. What mediums has she used, and what has she not? The list of haves is considerably shorter than the have-nots. So, where […]
