Our two and three year olds were focusing on the shape of a circle this week and one of their activities was to make a circle collage!

Each of the children were given a round paper plate because of its circular shape to use as the canvas for their circle collage.

The teacher had precut circles from a variety of materials including newspaper, tissue paper, and construction paper.

The children selected circles from the table, added a little glue and attached their circles to their paper plate.

Some of the children spread their circles out around the paper plate but other children preferred to stack their circles one on top of another.

The children enjoyed this simple process. I heard lots of talking and saw lots of gluing going on. As you are coming up with ideas for your young children, don’t overlook the simple ideas. Young children need time to explore the materials and create freely. I could see that the children were very relaxed as they made their circle collages.

I am linking up with Red Ted Art’s blog today!

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
