I have to admit they were brilliant and fascinated with the babies, which helped. At the start of the session, the little ones were given chubby paint dabs and encouraged to make marks onto photo paper that l had secured to a large piece of thick cardboard. One unexpected event was when the babies giggled because their feet made squeeky noises when coming into contact with the photo paper. The little boy showed his preference for orange and red, much to his mum's surprise. He and the little girl were just so full of smiles about everything, especially the big children.
How could you not smile back? Ha!
The end masterpiece... Tracy Emin eat your heart out!
This mini hot-water bottle has one smooth side and a side that is rougher and has ridges on it. It is perfect for trying different textures and just the right size for small hands to be able to hold for themselves. Also good for teething... as demonstrated below!
The felted scarf was a big hit with the babies as it is so soft and very colourful.
Making friends and having fun with a rattle and telling everyone about it... so cute!
I just love working with this age group, they are so like sponges, soaking EVERYTHING up and storing it away for later use. Fantastic privilege to be part of their lives, even for a short time.
