Hello,

I am leaving my current in at the end of the month. My boss asked me the other day if I could create an artwork with the children, for them to frame and out up in the new playroom ( in the process of being done) to remeber me .the children are 5,3, and 20mths. She wants my input in picture too.

I'm not sure what to do, as it needs to be something that's good, but I would like to include all three children's input. I did think a picture made out of had and feet prints. But can anyone come up with any other ideas?

You could do a collage with mag cuttings or colourful tissue paper to do the three children's names on white piece of card in seperate frames or just the first letter of each name and frame those.

Got it off this website http://www.theimaginationtree.com/p/art-craft.html

What about getting the children to do a massive collage type thing with wrapping paper, magazine cuttings, or paint a canvas with lots of bright colours, something really big, and then get photo's of you and your charges from the last few years and stick them over the collage, using it as the background for the photo's.

I seemed to have got myself roped in to helping out with the local toddler group we go to.

I am looking for ideas for craft activities for the children to do (all kids are 3 & under) we have very limited resources at the moment and it seems there is very little budget for us to purchase resources

from what I can see there is:

Paper/card
paint
glue
cotton wool
pipe cleaners
some tissue paper
string
other scr@p paper

Can any of you more creative people think of thing we can make with these resources

ooooooo Rope the women in from your local groups... Instead of recycling your cearal packets yoghurt pots get them to bring them in. You have alot more to make then.

Coloured "sand" in a bottle.

You will need.....
*A small bottle of some sort, glass preferably (found that large herb bottles work quite well)
*Normal table salt
*Chalks of different colours
*Glass paints (optional)

Put a fairly large amount of chalk onto a plate (plates with slightly raised edges work best)
Colour the salt using the chalk, one plate per colour.
Fill up the bottle, in layers and remember to push each layer down and compact it as much as possible. Superglue the lid on afterwards.
Use glass paints to paint the bottle afterwards and you have your own "coloured sand" in a bottle. Cheesy

My girls loved doing this about a year ago, and always ask to do it again..... Smiley

Thank you! Smiley x
