That’s a happy face at the end of our lesson today. Isabella is in Grade One. She wants to learn lots about art and she loves chapter books. She doesn’t like broccoli and her favourite animal in the jungle is a giraffe. She has two fish and one is a zebra fish. Isabella made a garden using pencils, oil pastels and watercolour paint. It was her first time using watercolour paint and she discovered that it dries faster than acrylic paint. She hid a tiger in her garden, a snake and a dragonfly. Can you find them? I can’t wait to see Isabella again. What a lovely way to spend an afternoon #craftytalesgeelong #artandcraft #letyourimaginationrunwild #paperandpaint #afterschoollessons #storytimeandcraft #creativeclasses #kidsingeelong #kidscreate #kidsdoart #afterschoolfun #greatergeelong #schoolkids

Two very different spiders @craftytalesgeelong were created this morning and we shared lots of stories. We found out that spiders don’t like the taste of ladybugs and that they eat their web when it is too broken. Did you know a baby spider is called a spiderling? I also have to look up my dinosaur dictionary to find out the names of some Dino’s in one of our stories and I’ll let Ned know next time I see him. Audrey made a colourful spider with her dad with lots of glitter and big eyes. Ned made a dark red platypus with flippers and stingers after being inspired by the seahorses in our book Mr Seahorse. He created a drawing of his dad on a driveway visiting friends and this marvellous spider with a big smile. Ned is going to surprise his mum with it when she gets home. His mum doesn’t like spiders or mice and his nan doesn’t like mice either. Ned thinks it’s because they steal the feta cheese at his house. #craftytalesgeelong #storytime #crafttime #craftyfun #readimaginecreate #imagination #toddlers #preschoolers #earlyyears #literacy #language #finemotorskills #materialplay #geelongkids #preschoolersgeelong
