Recently our art has focused on identifying shapes within objects and using them to draw a picture - this has included a study of Miro and using alot of the 'how to draw' books.
I wanted to take it a step further and see if they could think in 3D - so out came the clay. As a general rule I avoid clay as I always end up with a mess like this :(
However I bit the bullet today and let them go at it.
DD4 made the snake, DD6 the volcano and a sea lion (although I think it looks more like a platypus??)
and DD8 the sitting dog (which shes really proud of) I had to make a duck and dog for DD2 who also made a blob of her own. (and the biggest mess!)
All in all it was great fun and I didn't even mind the hand prints on the bathroom wall. LOL.
