This year the Kindergarten children will be taking some time each week to do some nature journaling. Last week they took a look at an ear of corn. Studied it, talked about it, then each started a sketch in their nature journal. They used watercolor paints to then paint their interpretations of the beauty of the corn.
This week, they were shown some objects that have symmetry. They talked about what that is and then used colored pencils to create the other half of a leaf.
It's so lovely and simple to take these basic objects, sit outside and create together. I have to say, it was so peaceful watching them for a minute I was quite tempted to sit down and join them.
