Last night we visited a Brownie Group and had a great time! When we turned up with a toadstool and a ream of paper, they all wondered what was going on! We kept them in suspense until we began the first activity. (It's amazing what can happen with a single piece of paper!)
The girls soon started getting creative and sharing ideas with each other. They were using great positive praise and complimenting each others work.
They thought it was a bit strange to sit at a table with their work hidden, but as soon as they understood 'The Big Reveal' they were excited to create their unique poem's picture. At ImagineCreate we share all of the poem first so the children can begin to visualise and picture the scene... We then slowly read it out again, line by line, so they can let their creativity in drawing flow! We were astounded by the outcome and how the girls worked well together. Even the girls who were unsure of their abilities left with a sense of achievement! We even heard them saying "I feel really proud of my work!" and "I want to do that again!"
Below is a snippet of the poem we shared and their great creations.
As I look out of the window what do I see
Some toadstools in a garden and some fairies in a tree
Two owls are in the branches and are watching all around
They see three girls are laughing and are standing hand in hand...
