Starting Monday, May 9th you can come by any time and create art! The Creation Station will now be a permanent feature in the Children's Room!What is it?

Create Crates - Red "Create Crates" contain everything you need to make art. Each crate has different supplies, and supplies will be refilled and changed regularly.

They are always available and there are no specific directions - use the supplies to create anything you can imagine!

To make sure our books and space stays clean and in good shape, one specific table will always be dedicated to using the crates. It is a space to experiment with the supplies, make something new, and even get a little messy!

Why is this important? The creative process holds important lessons and assists in child development. Developmental Benefits of Art: Motor Skills, Language Development, Decision Making, Visual Learning, Inventiveness, Cultural Awareness & Improved Academic Performance.
