The Playhouse children paint images from books

Date: 24 Jan 2018

Children at The Playhouse Day Nursery in Swindon have been improving their artistic skills by painting images of pictures they had observed in a variety of books.

As part of the Growing Readers enhancement, which aims to cultivate a love of books, the children were reading and were then encouraged to paint their own pictures as seen in the books for inspiration.

“The toddlers seemed really interested in talking about the fish that they were painting, so much so that the staff are now planning on taking the children to the nearby pet shop to see real fish,” said Nursery Manager Claire Hatherall.
