Winter Birds

Grade one students created these winter birds twittering through birch tree branches.  It was an awesome experience watching such young children create, challenge and explore.  Credit is given to this site for their fantastic idea.  This activity would typically be geared toward a grade four, five or six class…but, heh…what the heck!  Young children are so absolutely fearless. Their marks and use of colour, innate.

  1. “Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.”
