St Patrick’s Day fun!

This week we’ve been having tons of fun with the colour green in our own nod to St Patrick!

We’ve been printing with bubble wrap, practicing cutting with scissors and using our strong muscles to rip up tissue paper and create these fab lucky four leafed clovers…..

We’ve been printing with cookie cutters in different shades of green…..

And exploring some very bright green spaghetti!

We also had fun experimenting painting with watercolours (very swishy!), colour mixing, and getting very painty in the process!

Happy St Patrick’s Day all!

Eeek – award nominations!!

We’re really thrilled to have learned today that ARTventurers has been nominated as Best Local Activity for the Under 5s in the What’s On 4 Little Ones Awards 2014! It’s the third year in a row that we’ve been nominated and the fact that the nominations come from mums,dads and carers who attend our sessions really makes it extra special.

Fiona has also been nominated as Most Outstanding Activity Leader for the Under 5s (East) for the second year running which is a great accolade – well done!

ImageIf you’d take the time to vote for us in either or both categories we’d really appreciate it – it only takes a minute and I think there’s a prize draw too!

Thank you and huge thanks again for the nominations from all of us at ARTventurers!

Fiona, Lynn, Shirley, Karen, Caroline and Emily x
