Time to create in preschool

My teacher set the colored tape, black construction paper, scissors, and chalk on the table.

All I needed was a little time and the chance to do something all by myself.

I concentrated on my work.

The tape was sticky and I had to use my hands and my mind to figure out how to keep the tape from sticking together.

I made lines on my paper.

My lines began to form shapes

I had plenty of time to create more lines and more shapes.

My cutting skills were improving as I worked to cut the tape but I didn’t notice.

Some of my friends created their own shapes too! What shapes do you see?

This was fun and my confidence grew as I made my own decisions...

I am glad my teacher gave us time to create!

my preschooler did this at school almost every day last year. She would bring home the biggest, bulkiest, glue-y-est, tape-y-est messes! Then, of course, wanted them proudly displayed! UGH! Drove me NUTS but was soOOOOOOO good for her!!! Most parents would complain…..LOL.

The school spent an entire week this summer on nothing but creating with tape. I wasn’t able to take photos of all the kids in action but I did get photos of their work. I plan to post more soon:) The competition does live on!!
