::: irresistible clock sculptures
As we mentioned in tick tock we had another exciting adventure planned using the disassembled clocks (and our best friend – the hot glue glue gun).
We felt it was time for another whole group project and thought the children would enjoy a follow up to our nature sculptures.
We recycled a couple of old tins and covered them in wire as the base.
One for each group.
The children took it in turns to glue together a small selection of clock parts and other bits and pieces we had put out.
They chose the parts …
the positioning of them …
and did the glueing.
We are impressed at how confident …
and safety conscious around the glue gun they are now.
Both groups created a magnificent sculpture.
Blue Group said theirs looked like a “time machine”.
While Red Group thought theirs looked like it had come from “outer space”.
One of the fun things about this was that the clocks still ticked and the alarms could still be set to go off which gave both sculptures some animation!
It went tick when it moved
and tock when it stopped
and brinnnggggggg when it stood still!
Both groups gained a heap of satisfaction from their combined efforts and were very proud of them selves.
Irresistible sculptures indeed!
