Art and Creativity

Art is important for children especially during their early development. Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood; in other words, art is good brain food! Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and develops cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills. As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities for brain development, mastery, self esteem and creativity.

Sensory Play with Foam Dough

Have you tried Incredible Foam Dough? It’s the latest “craze” in modeling materials for children and it’s easy, affordable and fun for ages 3 and up.

This wonderful example of foam dough art was made by a teacher from Long Beach Day Nursery who applied foam dough to her desktop, making this delightful 3-D image.

Foam Dough is soft to touch, and makes a great substitute for traditional play dough and clay. Unlike other clays and dough, it’s virtually mess-free and can be re-used again and again. And the fact that it never dries out is enough to make teachers say “WOW, REALLY?”. But trust me, it’s true, you can even leave it out on the counter for a days and days and its consistency will not alter one little bit. Moreover, foam dough is the perfect sensory play material and exercises important cognitive skills as well as eye-hand-brain coordination. Sensory stimulation is so important in early childhood education, and this is one new sensory play product that you’re sure to love.

Purchase Colorations® IncredibleFoam™ Dough from Discount School Supply in a variety of colors and quantities. Foam dough affords children the ability to make decisions, solve problems and perfect for open ended, self directed play.

Amazing! It’s true, you can actually leave it out of the plastic bag and it stays the same moisture. If you like what you make and want to keep it, Incredible Foam is designed to be used again and again. Take it out of its container, mold, it mash it, play with it. If you like what you make and want to keep it. When you mix colors together, you get new colors!

The 2018 replica watches dial with its baton hour replica watches and straight hands is a bit more elegant, not as sporty, and I think it appeals to a slightly different audience given the look. The actual suitable replica watches has got the hr fight it out which orbits concerning the strong history. Out of all the dial colors, I like the gray the best. But I do not like replica watches luminous hour markers. For that simple fact, I would have to go with the black. I think all the dial hublot replica should be upgraded to the Luminous hour markers. Look how much better the watch looks with no ugly crown guards or the chunky screw down pushers. The actual Hublot view obvious utilizes hard disks rather than this particular recognized method of creating wrist watches. The actual custom rolex replica sale for sale tend to be the best options associated with buy rolex watches on the web.
