‘Quilting’ in a preprimary classroom

The theme my daughter has for her classroom this term is ‘ocean’. Language, art, music + centred on it. I gave her my dolphin quilt last week and she had the children guess what it showed, how it was made etc etc, and showed them a Utube with dolphins.  Some children had never heard of a sewing machine so she is taking hers in next week.  Then she asked them to make an abstract picture, with a stencilled dolphin to work up from if they wanted, using squares + of paper. She said the activity really engaged and challenged them, cutting the collage paper etc. and calmness reigned.  Next week it is my quilt of the leafy sea dragon with different art materials!
