Children at Bright Horizons Englefield Green Nursery and Preschool in Egham, Surrey have been improving their motor skills in a variety of ways.
The children were encouraged to paint using a range of tools including large stamps, Velcro straps and paint brushes. They also cut potatoes in half and used them to create their own patterns.
“The children had great fun using the different tools to paint,” said Alice Blackman, nursery manager. “We were delighted with the enthusiasm they showed and the creativity in the patterns and images they produced.”
The activity was part of Bright Horizons’ Growing Artists programme which aims to encourage children to be creative in art.
