Sticky Paper Art

Monday, November 14th, 2011

Young Explorers Schools children have been busy creating exciting art forms with the vinyl sign pieces donated by SignAge. The colorful pictures and murals are so unique. Each child can be successful and enjoy creating their own art pieces.

In addition to the creating of the art work, children also have practice using scissors which enables them to develop their small motor skills. It is always rewarding to watch them spend time peeling the backing and feeling they have accomplished a major achievement.

Young Explorers Schools truly appreciate Sue and SignAge for supplying us with the vinyl. “Sticky Paper Art” is a big exciting and rewarding art experience for us!

Now that the weather has finally cooled down, it is beginning to feel more like fall. We are gearing up for a busy couple of months with Family Involvement Activities and the holidays. This is a fun time of year and the children will have lots to share with you about all the activities they are doing in their classrooms. Please check your child’s art folder regularly and visit the classroom to see a slight glimpse of what their busy days entail.
