A Colour and Light Collage

reggio using ohp colour and light collage A Colour and Light CollageNow that the days are getting shorter our usually bright and sunny playroom  is quite dark by mid-afternoon. Gloomy? Not at all, it means that we can light up the walls with the OHP.

Jack usually takes a bit of time to wake up from his nap and settle into the afternoon. So to help with the transition I usually set up a simple activity on his art table. Nothing too elaborate, something he is familiar with and enjoys; something he can sit down and do by himself.

Today I’d set up a simple collage activity with contact paper when Jack asked to use the projector instead. Great idea! So I moved the activity from the table to the projector.

We missed our afternoon walk today, Jack and Sarah were too busy making ‘really beautiful patterns on the wall

  1. Beautiful. I use an overhead in my classroom for making shadows and tracings. But I love this idea and it would be perfect for our foggy, winter mornings. I will now be on the lookout for a large white sheet to project on. Where did you get the colored cellophane?

Thanks for coming by.
