The children enjoy seasonal art activities, and one way we incorporate new skills is to introduce them through these types of lessons. For this activity, the children were shown a new gluing technique using a small brush to seal layers of tissue paper squares. As with all lessons, the materials are set up keeping in mind the directionality of moving from left to right.
|Here the materials are set up on the art shelf. Moving from left to right, the child gathers the tissue paper squares , glue tray, and white paper with a shamrock shape.|
|Everything is brought to a workspace, where the child completes the process of sealing the tissue paper squares using the glue and brush.|
|Once dried, the paper can be cut into the shamrock.|
