Garden to Go
VENUE / CHILDREN'S ACADEMY NORTHERN NJ
When a local teacher was looking to create an art based project that 2-year-olds could work on independently yet complete as a group, we immediately thought of a class garden. Each child was given a pack of supplies needed to create a flower of his or her own, to be "planted" in the class garden. Taking into account each child's skill set, select parts of the project were assembled before presentation. The concept and execution, however, were fully up to the interpretation of each child. It was a success! We brought along pictures of local and exotic plants for inspiration as well as some fairy whimsy.
