I am looking for different ideas the more unusual the better for art work wall displays for the children in the creche using a transport theme.
For example: for a water theme we had a beach display and had dolphins jumping out of the water, sail boats ont he water, deep down in the water we had different types of sea life. Another display was a park with a pond and we had people walking on the paths feeding the ducks and swans and frogs on lilly pads.
SO i am looking for different ways to display all types of transport. We have 4 rooms in the creche with plenty of walls and windows to cover.
Thanks for your help.
When I have done transport in the past I have done a long road made out of crepe paper (or something similar) then have made white lines done the middle, I have then got the children to colour/make the different types of transport and stuck them on the road. We also included traffic lights to bring in the different colours, zebra crossing/lollipop man to do road safety. We also used photograpghs of street signs/street names so they can bring in the local area.
you might like to take some ideas from the displays section of
www.sparklebox.com or (uk)
i'd put a transport-related caption above it saying something like:
"We deliver the best!" or "We're high fliers" or "Hop aboard and see our great work" to link the theme and to draw attention to the children's artwork.
Hi this is totally off topic but sparklebox is run by a convicted Paedophile, he obviously doesnt have anything to do with children but I wouldnt want anything to do with this site. I used to use it all the time but havent since I read about this.
