Mark making (1)

Tigers enjoyed lots of different mark making activities inside as well as outside in the garden. They used hands, fingers, cars and other items to create their marks with chalks, coffee and also flour. 

By giving children the opportunity to explore different mediums of mark making, it engages them in sensory play and allows them to discover new exciting materials. This helps to enhance a child’s critical thinking, brain development and language development.

Mark making can also represent a child’s thoughts and ideas. It gives children the opportunity to express themselves creatively and allows them to communicate their feelings through their drawings or even use their marks to tell a story!
