Chick Art

Clara and I had our group of friends over for Freeschool today.  I did a little lesson on chicks.  First we sang our hello song, then we sang “Old MacDonald,”  then we read This Little Chick by John Lawrence with the felt board as a helper.  After that, the chicks came out and oh the excitement!  There was flapping and petting and dancing around.  Everyone, the chicks included, was thrilled.  Once the chicks went back in their box, we made our own chicks out of play clay.  They were some what abstract.  The kids each got a lump of clay, some pipe cleaners, googlie eyes, a foam triangle (orange), and as many feathers as they wanted.  Clara took her clay, pushed a bunch of feathers on top and then cried because the feathers stuck to her fingers, as she had clay all over them.  Then she took all of the feathers off her clay and decided to make pizza instead.  That was closely followed by licking/pretending to eat the clay.
Some of the other kids had better experiences with making a chick.  Here are a couple of examples.

They turned out pretty cute and nonrepresentational, don’t you think?

    Looks like freeschool fun! I like Clara’s dress better than her “chick” art though.

      No Eggo. I ended up having too much help naming the chicks to make everyone happy. Maybe the next set.
