Art at the Daycare: Take Care of Our Earth

Art at the Daycare: Take Care of Our Earth

Today was art day for the Early Twos at Cornerstone Child Development Center, and the children were learning about taking care of our earth.  We talked about how birds are a very important species to our earth, and everyone made a bird hatching from an egg like the one you see above.


  • I had already cut a bird shape from brown construction paper.  The children glued two eyes and a beak onto the bird's head.

  • Next came the bird's feathers: one on the head and three on the body.

  • With the feathers glued, the children turned their attention to painting the bird's egg.

  • The last step was to glue the bird onto a special paper I made on the computer.  As you can see from the example below, the paper had a frame made from the words: Take Care of Our Earth.

  • Here is what the finished bird looked like.

Concepts Explored:

  • eye hand coordination
  • small muscle coordination
  • color recognition
  • vocabulary
  • listening
  • taking turns
  • following directions

Do you have a comment or a suggestion?  I'd love to hear from you.
