Creativity ( three little pigs) - 5th September 2022

Project: As we continue our three little pigs project with the Joeys, today I provided the children with a painting activity. I set up the easel with three different colours which is the colour theme of the three little pigs story. I provided the children with pink, brown and yellow, I set up the table with a sequence of the little pigs for the children to use as a medium. Pilar, Hunter, Tilly, Elya, Nathan and Marlee were so keen to have a turn . I sat with the children and explain to the Joeys that they need to wait for their turns. I asked 'who will like a turn first, Pilar and Nathan put their hands up and they said "me" they had a turn first, Pilar had a lot of pink and Nathan was more interested in the brown paint. Elya and Hunter sat down and waited for their turn, when pilar and Nathan were done with their painting, Pilar said to Elya 'here's your turn', offering Elya the paintbrush she had. Elya use the pink paint and said to Me, 'Maher look pink', I pointed to the three little pigs sequence and said to Elya 'look the pigs are pink', 'beautiful painting Elya', Elya smiled and continue with her painting. Nathan was done with his paint, and Hunter then had a turn. Kavith and Elijah had their turn, Elijah used his fingers to paint on the paper and Kavith was very focused on his painting. Marlee and Tilly were waiting patiently for them.

EYLF Outcomes

Outcomes: 4: Children are confident and involved learners Elements: 4.1 Children develop dispositions for learning such as curiosity, cooperation, confidence, creativity, commitment, enthusiasm, persistence, imagination and reflexivity. Children in this learning experience were curious and enthusiastic participants in their learning.


This learning experience can be linked to Gardner's theories. He saw the arts and creativity as playing major roles in children's learning. Children are able to explore many cognitive concepts through their play and creative explorations.


Critical Reflection: I was able to respond to children's displays of learning dispositions by commenting on them and providing encouragement and additional ideas. Through the painting activity, I was able to provide opportunities for children to revisit their ideas and extend their thinking. Providing the children with a Painting experience, allows the children to express their feelings, emotions and creativity. This painting activity allows children to develop vital fine motor skills, fine muscle strength, coordination, language skills and imagination. It also encourages children to try new experiences, feel a sense of pride and achievement with what they can produce and gain confidence in their learning and abilities. Letting the children lead this Painting activity allows the children to experiment with colours, mixing colours and creating their own colours to suit their ideas of what they want to produce. Follow-up: More painting activities
