Before your child starts
Be prepared to sing, act and move with your child.
Ask your child to help you set up a good art making space that protects furniture, their clothing and other precious items.
Ensure you encourage them to clean up their paints and wash their brushes with you.
What your child needs to do
Practise saying or singing the nursery rhyme with your child.
Sing the nursery rhyme with your child again, but this time in an exaggerated manner or with a silly voice.
Recite it a third time with some movement around the room. You can watch an example in the video Let’s move and freeze.
Think about the way the character in your nursery rhyme would move. Move with your child and then freeze in a pose and take a photo.
What your child can do next
Watch the video ‘This Old Man’. Sing it or say it with a family member.
Practise saying and writing the numbers 1 to 10.
Use the video Introduction to Visual Arts to help you create an artwork using the numbers 1 to 10.
Create an artwork by using different bottle tops to print the different numbers. Use the example included here to help you get started:
Options for your child
Activity too hard?
Draw pictures of a number of objects or simply collect numbers of objects. Print make only up to 5.
Activity too easy?
Explore further numbers and different objects to print make with.
Create abstract artwork by printmaking. Think about the ways in which the shapes can overlap and what colours can be used. Layer the shapes and colours over each other to make a more interesting artwork.
