Creative Experiences Session #1

Yesterday a group of children gathered for a new session of Creative Experiences after school.  Mrs. Baldwin & Mrs. Gabrielse have teamed up this year to offer a time for children to explore the world of arts, crafts, and free artistic expression. Each session is 6 weeks long and is offered on Wednesdays 3:15-4:30, for ages 4-6.  

While enjoying a snack, Mrs. Baldwin read Leaf Man, by Lois Ehlert

Making their own leaf boys & girls

We decorated with field corn, acorns, stones, flowers, sticks and beans

We also had the opportunity to make our own Pumpkin Pie Playdough!  The children enjoyed adding ingredients to our bowl, smelling the spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice), and kneading the colors yellow and red into their own playdough.


The children also made leaf  "stained glass" and "watercolor leaves"
