The first three sections are practical examples of creative practice in early years settings that was devised by artists working with children and early years practitioners. They show how simple starting points and resources were extended through the children’s interaction, and are not meant to be followed exactly, but used as examples of how you could develop your work.
• The sections are themed – working outside, working with materials, stories and feelings.
• There are examples of activities for different ages. • They are designed to be like a recipe book with easy to follow stages. Choose one to put on the wall as a focus for a week’s activities.
• Connect to a digital projector and use during a training session.
Section 4 Open Sesame!
Read a summary of the Open Sesame project to give another perspective on the work.
Section 5 Looking back to move forward
