FUN WITH PRINTING
Printmaking allows children to try out lots of different techniques and to see cause and effects in action more dramatically than with simply painting or drawing. Prints with fingers tips and thumb are fun for kids. It is a wonderful sensory experience for them. This messy play stimulates their creativity and imagination and helps them in strengthening finger and hand muscles.
To develop all these skills in our little learners,
K.R Mangalam World school Paschim Vihar conducted Tip and Thumb printing activities for the K.G students in the 4th week of September 2020 in the virtual classes.
Children dipped their finger tips and thumbs in their favourite colours and made beautiful prints on the sheets given to them. They made different scenes like garden, river or mountain areas with the help of this exclusive technique of printing. Such art activities are very important in early childhood as these activities help the body and brain to integrate information and it is also a most relaxing and creative way to express feelings. Children explored this interesting way of printing and had lot of fun with colours.
