Learning with 2 kids and a mommy

Picasso's abstract art

Hello world! We are in the midst of working on a new set of worksheets and activities. While awaiting for the worksheets to be completed, I have created a maths beading board for the little ones. This is what I did the night before while the kids are asleep.

These are the materials for making the beading board. I have cut out a cardboard from a box. Best way to recycle stuffs ūüėČ As for the beads, those are what I have used to make necklaces in the past!

This morning, as usual, we did¬†our flashcards program where one of the topics was¬†about Picasso. The kids had a brief introduction about Picasso and his¬†few famous paintings. They love looking at his paintings. To tell you the truth, I didn’t know that Picasso was¬†such a strong influential artist till I started my research on him. All I know about him was a painter. He is such an inspiration to me after “knowing” him.

Picasso’s paintings are a great way to teach kids about abstract art. The kids hands started to itch after looking at his beautiful drawings. Immediately, after the lesson about Picasso and abstract art,¬†the kids quickly grabbed their¬†drawing paper and colour pencils¬†and start¬†to get down to work by creating a self portrait in the style of Picasso.

Here they are focusing on their art.

The little one doesn’t like colouring so she proceeds on with the maths beading board while the elder boy finished up his colouring. After he’s done, he joined his sister on the maths beading board.
