  • Guest Post: Emily's Experience with Citrus Dough | Carle Museum
    from my yard and when I arrived found that the WFP had their own garden with parsley basil kale and tomato leaves which we happily added to the mix The children dove in so quickly that I didn t even have time to snap a picture of the set up One toddler immediately began pressing the shells into balls of dough and also experimenting with stuffing the dough into the shells Another child used a cupcake liner to contain a ball of dough and then started pressing various leaves into it and then peeling them off to reveal leaf impressions This preschooler began shaping the dough into a pastry that incorporated some of the fresh basil leaves She discovered that the popsicle stick made a good tool for shaping her pastry and rounding its edges Some of the children started playing bakery while others were silently absorbed in their creations This child used the popsicle stick to divide a slab of dough into slices He was very excited to have created a big ball of dough by mixing all three doughs together Leaving the herbs on the stem opened up many possibilities This child spent the entire time creating this elaborate tree from the materials available It was a joy to see the children going in so many different directions some repurposing the cupcake liners as tiny bird nests and rolling up little eggs out of dough or bananas on popsicle sticks and some spending their time smelling and feeling the way the dough squished between their hands The time flew by and everyone passing by the room commented on how delicious the fresh herbs and citrusy doughs smelled This is definitely an experience I d like to try again with a group as well as at home with my own toddler The doughs were simple to make and clean up and inspired so much engaged play Just remember to add enough salt so that the dough doesn t taste as good as it smells Thanks Emily This dough exploration will definitely inspire one of my upcoming sessions of Materials Play for Toddlers The next series Fridays October 17 through November 7th 2014 runs here in the Art Studio at The Carle from 10 00 10 30 am Materials Play for Toddlers is free with Museum admission and does not require registration Just drop in when you can Now I hope you will share What has been your toddler or preschooler s favorite way to play and imaging with dough Making Art with Children is generously sponsored by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority by Meghan Burch Tags Emily Prabhaker sensory dough natural materials herbs play This entry was posted on Saturday September 13th 2014 at 2 58 pm and is filed under Homemade Materials and Tools Infants and Toddlers Nature Preschool Sculpture You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply

    the paint by themselves In addition to the bottles we ll sometimes provide handmade stamps to add extra details to the papers Learn how to Make Your Own Foam Stamp here If you are doing this project with a large group or classroom of children assign each child a paint color Their bottles will stay in that paint color tray but they can rotate and use the different bottles and colors available That way everyone gets a variety of marks and colors on their papers We also let kids choose the colors of their Folia papers that they want to use During our 45 60 minute sessions children have time to make several papers each After rolling their bottle in the paint to cover as many of the foamy shapes as they can they return to the tables and transfer the tempera paint onto their paper by rolling the bottle across the paper in a rolling pin motion The neck and the bottom of the bottle should stay paint free so it s easy to roll without getting paint all over your hands Paint on hands and clothes is normal for this project so use a smock and work near a sink for easy cleanup I always demonstrate all of the steps before we begin so the children can work more independently 1 Choose a piece of paper and put it at your table Write your name in one corner of your paper 2 Roll the bottle in the paint at the paint station 3 Bring the bottle to your table to roll the bottle on your paper 4 Return the bottle to the paint tray for the next person 5 carry your paper over to the drying rack or clothes line 6 Go back to step 1 In the beginning there are usually lots of questions but after they roll on the paper they immediately pick up on the technique We ve taught children 5 5 11years old how to do this project For younger children expect to provide more hands on assistance from an adult or older child When we can we dry the papers in the sun on a clothes line the paint dries more quickly than just on a rack or table When the first layer of color is dry you can can roll a second or third layer of paint without the colors mixing The papers really pop when there are multiple layers of pattern on them Here are a few works in progress Rolling a second color over her dry first layer A few more finished papers The papers in these photos we later cut out and turned into decorative covers for handmade books but they can be used for cards wrapping paper and of course collage The materials are very easy to find and affordable for this activity you can t beat free and the patterned paper can be saved and used for so many future projects Now get rollin Making Art with
