On Saturday I attended a workshop for educators run by the Canadian Wildlife Federation. We were introduced to a range of activities to help children become more aware of the environment and the way in which it works. One of the activities was to create a fish based on the characteristics we had been given on a card with the recycled material available. We let our imagination flow:
Once the art work and creativity had been admired, the items used were put back in the bins to be reused. What a fun way to teach children about the characteristics of fish. I would, of course, have to take many pictures before dismantling the art work 🙂
Doing the activity reminded me of a show my children loved to watch when they were younger: Art Attack. Here is a clip I found of one of the huge art attack’s that Neil Buchanan (the host) did on his show:
We always loved watching to see what he came up with.
Have you ever done an Art Attack?
