Using old ceramic tiles and white China markers the preschoolers set out to create a bird mural.
We talked briefly about making our own individual pictures but once the idea of "having the pieces fit like a puzzle" was provoked the children immediately gravitated toward it.
Some drew the ground with a pond where ducks swim and some drew trees where baby owls can live.
In the trees are the nests that birds make to keep their eggs safe and to sleep in. Above the nests and eggs are the birds flying in the sky to hunt for food like seeds and mice, or perhaps to visit the lonely mountain.
Though each child worked individually each image works in tandem with the others to create an exceptional piece of art.
