Hurricane Process Art for Preschoolers
As an Experience Early Learning Blog Ambassador, we receive the Experience Early Learning preschool curriculum in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. As always, our opinions on amazing things for children are 100% our own. Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best judgement when planning activities for your children.
We had such a wonderful time this week learning about hurricanes with Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time).
As a class, we held hands and walked around in a circle. We discussed how the center of a hurricane is calm.
The preschoolers learned that the center of a hurricane is called the "eye" and strong winds circle around it.
Our creative art for today from Experience Early Learning was hurricane process art and the children had a great time making their own hurricanes.
We used eyeshadow applicators, shaving cream, and paint to make hurricane-inspired art.
Each process art activity includes prompts and an inspiration photo to get the preschoolers thinking creatively.
What do you see happening in the photo?
What is happening in your painting?
What happens when you add paint to the shaving cream?
How does your painting feel?
Process art is a wonderful way to encourage problem-solving and fine motor skills too.
We definitely love the process art activities that are included in each month's Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) curriculum kit.
Don't forget to check back next week to see what we're up to as we wrap up our Weather & Seasons theme.
