Continuing Ferris Wheels

Since making our huge ferris wheel in the art room, we have continued to talk about how we would like to make more!

Following the children’s lead from the previous ferris wheel they made in the studio, we provided them with a table full of materials along with different sized boards to create on.

When we woke up from nap, we had 2 tables set up and ready for us to begin creating our masterpieces!

We were also provided with an enlarged picture of our original Ferris wheel we all worked on together. We are SO proud of this creation! ;o)


The girls set off to work having an idea in mind as to how they would like to create their art pieces…using purple and blue pieces to form a circle first….

 Devyn began making her shape and using the rocks as seats….

We even thought we need to make a ladder to climb on to reach the ride….


The boys even decided to join in when this inviting area caught their eye…


Some of us just wanted to create a BIG ladder for a ferris wheel…while others decided to make half of a ferris wheel!

 All the children joined together to discuss what their ferris wheel should have on it…

After making it we practiced counting how many pieces of each material we had…



While some of us insisted of making a ferris wheel, some of us decided to use the materials to create other things!!
