Planning activities for young children in any curriculum should stemfrom the interests, needs, abilities, and cultural influences of thechildren in the group. Appropriate art activities for preschool-agedchildren should be open-ended, play-based, and fun. And rememberopen-ended means no childs art work will look like another childs each child gets to choose how their art will turn out!
Inaddition to completing this write-up, you will also actually do theactivity! You are going to get to play. If you have children at home,you can do this as a family! Then take a picture of your artwork andpost it in the “See What I Did!?” discussion thread.
Category or concept:
Whatis the general art medium you are using? Like marking/drawing tools; 2Dcollage; 3D collage; paint and finger paint; manipulatives like playdough, goop, etc., Check your text or syllabus for additionalcategories.

Title of art activity:
You can title your activity anything youd like; it helps if you include something descriptive.
What to include in your plan:
Objectives must be observable and measurable; this means you can tell
whether or not the child accomplishes them. If you begin the objective
with the phrase “The child will…” or “The child will be able to…”
and follow this with an action word (verb), it might help you in writing your
objectives. For example:
“The child will blend primary colors to make a secondary color.
“The child will match his/her actions to the descriptive words ‘fast, slow, high, low.'”
“The child will participate in a cooperative experience with other children.”
2-Materials and set-up needed: Be very descriptive in this section. Include specific details about:
-Sowhat materials will you need to gather to for the children to enjoy theactivity? Be specific and detailed about the color, size, texture,number of items, kinds of items, etc.
-Share exactly how you willset-up the activity and display materials, including a diagram orpicture if that will help. Remember, how you set up the activity shouldhelp guide the children to know how many children can join in at once;and suggest how the activity is done. For example, paint brushes next tothe water colors with water for cleaning the brush.
3- How to do the activity/process:
Describewhat actions and skills the children will use to participate in thisactivity. For example, in a finger painting experience, will you beputting the paint on the paper or will the child? Will you push up thechildrens sleeves first? If you listed scraping materials in #2, howwill the children use them?
4-Helpful hints and guidance needs:
Forexample: Will the children wear smocks or cover ups? Will you push upthe childrens sleeves first? How will you and the children clean up?Any safety factors?
Id like you to share how you would modify or make the activity accessible for a child with one of the following disabilities:
– sensory sensitivity issues OR
-cognitive delays OR
– limited use of right side due to cerebral palsy
6-Two open ended questions and two appropriate comments:
– Share two open-ended questions AND two appropriate comments that you might use when talking with the children about their art.
– Remember, open ended means there are many, many different answers!
– And remember our class discussion about using descriptive notevaluative comments when talking with children about their art work.Something that can help you be descriptive is using the elements of artin your comments.
