School Age Program

January 2021

With the eagerness around creating “characters” in the program, we decided to implement plasticine to see if this media would spark some interest.

We encouraged the children to make a plan first and look at the tools that would be provided before they start to create. It did not take long before we heard “M” say “I am going to make a baby Yoda.” I inquire, “What colours will you need?” “Hmm I think brown and green.”

Soon afterwards, "H" decides she will make a unicorn.

"H" works meticulously as she creates each part of her masterpiece. We hear, “Look I did it, I made a Unicorn!”

It was wonderful to see how much creativity all the children had as they spent the week moulding sculpting and exploring the clay tools.

Take a look at the photos!
