Creative Development – Exploring Media and Materials
Development matters: Begin to combine movement, materials, media or marks (22–36 months); Use ideas involving fitting, overlapping, in, out, enclosure, grids and sun-like shapes (40–60+ months).
Early learning goal: Explore colour, texture, shape, form and space in two or three dimensions.
What you need
Baskets for gathering items; a collection of natural items, such as pebbles, leaves and feathers; outdoor surfaces for making the collage, such as a patio or lawn; a digital camera.
