“Conditions for creativity are to be puzzled; to concentrate; to accept conflict and tension; to be born everyday; to feel a sense of self.”
Crayons, markers, pens and pencils are usually staples in any art area. As children’s skills grow and develop the materials usually graduate with them. Staplers, tape, scissors, stickers etc. The list can go on. I recruit help from the families as well. It’s not always that it is necessary, but it is important to involve them as active members in the preschooler’s education.
Parents and families are creative as well and have so much to bring to the table. They are so necessary in the education of the ‘whole child’.
Wow…what a group of people…and the children….imagine the community…and the work that they would produce.
