Found pictures of them doing painting on National Day few years back and decided to write something about it.
When the kids were at very young age, I like to engage them in Art & Craft. Using art & craft to teach them on alphabets is good and interesting as they got to color or create something out of recycled items to form something related with the alphabet. It could leave a deeper impression on them.
Not sure was it because I had engaged them in these activities at a very young age, the teachers always commented that the children love to draw and they draw very nice. They had no problem getting their hands dirty with paint or cutting things using scissors.
However, with the overwhelming school activities and homework, they are often left with less time to do any art & crafts.
Below are one of the moments when they were free and got the mood to do some painting activities. Since that day happened to be National Day, I had suggested to them to paint something related to National Day instead.
See the video how they enjoyed painting on National Day.
Here's the artwork on that National Day....
Amilie's version of National Day. There's fireworks near Singapore Flyer and our Singapore Flag. Reflect everything about activities on a National Day
Izaac's wishing Singapore a Happy National Day. Just simple with a clear message.
Athina's version. Hmm, well, she wasn't really good at drawing at that time and expressing with multiple colors of fireworks.
