Toddler Art Playgroup
Art Playgroup is for children around 15 months up to 4 years old. At Art Playgroup we offer a variety of art and sensory invitations for children to explore. Each week we offer a homemade play dough or real clay activity, wet and/or dry sensory bins, at least one type of painting opportunity and other art materials or art processes to explore. In addition there is a light table and an area where the children can tinker with, explore, play, and engineer with loose parts (non-toys- like boxes, tubes, clips, and more...). We also have a Mud Kitchen in the garden, so outdoor play is always a possibility when the weather permits. As much as possible we use natural materials such as wood, metal, and items from nature. We also use real and realistic (child safe) objects, tools and toys. Children are fascinated with the opportunity to use real objects, and materials in their explorations. The materials we use are carefully chosen for their sensory stimulating properties and the activities are designed for exploring and creating using the senses.
The lessons are child led, which means the children choose what to interact with and explore from the invitations presented each week. Children can choose to explore with their parents, on their own and/or with the other children. The focus is on allowing the children to engage their senses as they explore the materials and creative processes on offer at their own pace and interest.
The art activities and sensory bins can be messy, so be prepared for a little mess. We provide aprons for the children, if they want to wear them. A change of clothes for the children is recommended, but not always necessary. We also often use food materials in our sensory bins, If your child has any food allergies please be sure to let me know in advance!
