Why I Have Created This Website
Hello, I'm Ellie.
I am currently a student who is about to graduate from Cardiff Metropolitan University with a BA in Fine Art. Im very excited that in September, I will be starting my teaching degree at Battledown Children Centre in Cheltenham, where I have been working since last June as an early years practitioner. Due to most children being unable to go to school because of the current global situation with Covid19, I decided to set up this website. Full of fun and creative activities, to keep young minds active, and help motor development.
Shaving Foam Marbling
This is Emily, having fun creating some sensory artwork, relating to her school project this week of Safari animals.
Food colouring or Paint mixed with water
Cut shape of animal you want to print on to and set aside.
Spread a thin amount of shaving cream onto an art tray.
Drop some food colouring onto the shaving cream and swirl in to shapes.
Take the cut out animal and press face down into the coloured shaving foam and lift off.
Vinegar/Baking Soda reaction
This week me and Emily, created some more sensory based artwork this time also using sound and sent, listening to the reaction of the vinegar and baking soda and the smelling the strong sent of the vinegar.
Sprinkle the Baking soda onto the paper.
Mix together a few drops of food colouring with a tablespoon of vinegar.
Use the pipets to drop the coloured vinegar onto the baking soda, watch it fizz.
Scrape off leftover baking soda once the vinegar has been absorbed.
