Special Christmas message from Kids Create


Miss Maker, Kopyright, Mini Magpie, Pickuttue, Colourful Fabric, Queen Sparkles, Flowering Wool spent a busy last day of term (6th Dec), at Kids Create, finishing off projects.

Painting the salt dough snake.

Completing our collaborative Santa.

Creating a large creative piece. 

All salt dough pieces painted.

Christmas decoration - tested on a living 'christmas tree' model. 

Working on a template for a new book art piece. 

Along with Em-the-awesome, Mista Beat and myself, Little Sparrow, we all needed to focus and work efficiently, so we had time to make snow! 

Yes, snow, in Melbourne in December!!

We had a lot of fun mixing up bicarb and conditioner, to a snow-like consistancy. As we mixed we talked about our snow experiences. Some had never seen real snow, others had gone with family to the mountains to see it. I told of growing up in a town where it snowed in winter and school was sometimes cancelled (because the snow was too heavy).

Once the snow was formed we went about creating our Christmas scene, incorporating the snow and 3D objects from the materials box. After a bit of discussion it started to take form, beginning with a Christmas tree.

We had a melting snowman...

Some presents...

A snow sled and it's owner, skilfully crafted out of cups. 

Sled marks were left in the snow.

alongside footprints. 

Our Santa turned elf was added.

And we all wish you a very

and a safe and happy New Year.

See you in 2015!

Once again a very big thank you to my wonderful volunteers. 
THANK YOU to Noah who has been an absolute delight to work alongside all year, to Em who returned to us after her exams had finished, and to Kerry-Anne who joined us for a few weeks. You have each added so much to the young artist's experiences and to the energy of the group. 
We are so very grateful!
