Last week (below) we discussed ways to encourage children to think about point of view. Now we share a fun art activity to further engage children to discuss and consider this important skill.
First have children use a paper bowl or small paper plate and decorate it like a hot air balloon.
Next prepare the balloon "basket" by cutting small paper cups in half.
Take photos of children, raising their arms. Print each photo and cut it out.
Children can put these together to make a three dimensional artistic creation to show that they CAN look at the world from different viewpoints.
