Little Crackers Nursery Wins New National Early Years Art Competition
Little Crackers Nursery has won first prize in the ISA Arts ABC Hand Print Competition.
This new competition recognises the role of art in promoting and supporting learning in the early years. The challenge was to create an alphabet using hand prints and the children at Little Crackers Nursery had a marvellous time working together to produce a colourful animal ABC. Each child chose the animal they liked, and the colour for the basic hand prints, they then added details afterwards with felt pen, googly eyes and even feathers.
Nursery Teacher, Lisa O’Carroll Bailey, explains, “This was a super activity for the children that they really enjoyed, we had lots of fun creating our animal alphabet letters. It was great learning and I never expected our entry to win.”
The individual hand prints will now all be framed and mounted on the Nursery walls as a permanent phonic resource.
