Working in Nature or with something from Nature always enlighted the SOUL.
First we have collected the leaves of differnt kinds from our garden ,then we arranged our NATURE ART TABLE to start up with some art.
So everyone picked a yellow paper and started with his own version of making a SPRING ART.
Choosing the right leave is the outcome of the "CHILD'S SUPER IMAGINATIVE POWER" which is just natural for him to do.
Every child enjoys the ART especially if it is open-ended and from Nature.
Its so natural for children to sit together and do their favourite stuff but the Concept of ORIGINALITY is always evident in their work.
Concentration is the key to exploration and finally Creation.
Leaves provide them the Lesson of Botany( various kinds of leaves), about Geometry (shapes), about Maths (Counting , Sorting and Categorizing ), about Language (new vocabulary), about History ( connection of trees with man's life), about Geography (different kinds of leaves in different environments of the world) and many more.
Last but not the least is the fact that LEAVES n NATURE provokes LOVE AND CREATIVITY in a child.
LETS GO OUT AND COLLECT SOME MORE LEAVES.
