Glue is for pouring

Glue is for pouring.

Shout out to our Curiosity Approach Accredited setting @butterfliesofbritain. Why not have a read of what Lindsey Moore of the Nature play centre had to say about their glue table? πŸ₯°

β€œNature buddies this week with uplands preschool - firstly πŸ˜¬πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ ok we got very very messy this week!

But WOW what fun we had, and the experiences that took place and followed.

I started both days by talking to the children about art, showing them some of the great works of art that are famous. We talked about what ones we liked, what we didn’t, what we could see in the artwork. We all had different ideas of the meaning of each artwork.

The centre had invitations for exploring art in every room.

I did tell the children that the art studio was about expressive art experiences πŸ˜‚ so some children really enjoyed expressing themselves in the form of art πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ˜πŸ€ͺ😬

Here is our Glue Station, we have started on making a glue sculpture table - This is the table of broken or odd lost treasures, that can be smothered in glue and stuck into place

What do you think ? I think this is going to be so exciting to see the table being added too. β€œ

Children are free to explore paint and glue to feel it, to mix with it, to pour and squelch with it.”

We wrote a post about this recently about how children may have a trajectory schema and love watching the glue drip and pour!

We just love these images and what a great way to use broken items, recycled material. Odds and ends from junk drawers and broken costume jewellery.

Be curious, have fun and make a difference❀️
