Creativity Day

Hi my name is Emma and I’m an artist and a teacher. Today will be all about creativity at EYFS Home which is my favourite thing in the world! We will be using our imagination to do and be whoever we want to be.

Express Yourself

We can express ourselves in lots of different ways and I thought we could draw all the things that we love, to show to everyone.

 

Together with your child record all the things that they love to do. Draw pictures and words to match and celebrate the ways that we express ourselves.

This supports children’s language and communication and personal, social and emotional development.

Create

What do you love to create? Why not look back at our expressing yourself activity and see what you would like to do. I’m an artist so I’m going to create a picture.

Together with your child record all the things that they love to do. Draw pictures and words to match and celebrate the ways that we express ourselves.

This supports children’s language and communication and personal, social and emotional development.

Imagination

If you could do anything you wanted, what would you do? Who would you be?

I love being creative and I’d play music all day!

Have a look through your dressing up box and all the things around your house.

Dress up and role play, really believe you are that person.

Join in with your child and use your imaginations to be anything you dream of. This supports children’s personal, social and emotional development.

Free to be me

I’ve found an old book in my house full of games. One of my favourite games to play is ‘Kim’s game’, it’s all about having a great memory. Let’s play!

 

Play a game together with your family about what makes you who you are. Come up with your own questions to find out more about each other. What is my favourite colour? What is my favourite story? What do I love to do more than anything?

Who is my favourite story book character? What do I want to do when I am older?

Extension

Play a game of ‘Guess who?’ Can you describe the different people?

If you don’t have the game at home, why not have a go at drawing pictures of different people. Maybe some people will wear glasses, some may have long blonde hair. They might be wearing a hat! It’s up to you.

Maybe you can use your imagination to create a story about the different characters?
