Arty Doodlers are individual art/craft & messy play sessions for children ages 1 -5 years. These fun packed sessions will have planned art/craft activities as well as opportunities for time in our imaginative play areas
What is Imaginative Play?
The imaginative play areas are on the floor on our colourful mats and these change at each session. They can include
home made play doh & cutters
Sensory trays with pasta, rice, slime, gloop, water, paper and lots more
crayons & rubbing plates
painting wall…… the list continues!
It’s all about letting the children gain confidence in their own imagination and it is through play that children will learn & develop. The children will be provided with tools to develop and practise fine motor skills and hand eye co-ordination.
Activities such as pouring, measuring, mixing, scooping and beating will develop hand eye co-ordination. Using tools such as tongs, spoons, brushes, crayons will develop their fine motor skills. Small muscle skills will be developed with activities such as playdoh, crayons, chalks and brush work.
Planned Art/Craft Activities
During the session we have THREE planned art/craft activities the children will also learn to follow instructions, solve simple problems and develop their decision making and organisational skills. Children will get to use a variety of materials for their masterpieces including glue, paint glitter, sequins, stickers and so much more!
It is not always about how the finished item looks, it’s the process that children go through, creating a great sense of pride in their accomplishments. Being being able to create something special is important for everyone but especially for children.
Parents/carers stay with the children during the session, allowing them to spend precious time together, enjoying the activities, without having to worry about the mess and clean up.
Every session is different with changing themes, activities and imaginative play – always promising to introduce something new every time!
