Diorama 🐁🐁

My kids took a nature class where they read the Autumn Story, from The Complete Brambly Hedge. This book has a wonderful story about the adventures of a community of mice living in the hedgerow. During the class they kids create a diorama with recycled materials or gifts given by nature. The final result was a beautiful demonstration of collaboration, creativity and hard word. I hope this activity inspires you to use the world for inspiration! 🌎


WHAT IS A DIORAMA?

A diorama is a three-dimensional model or display that depicts a scene or story. It typically consists of a small-scale replica of a setting or environment, such as a forest, a cityscape, or a historical event, along with small figurines, objects, and other decorations that help bring the scene to life. Dioramas can be made using a variety of materials, such as cardboard, construction paper, fabric, and plastic, and are often used as educational tools or as a way to showcase artwork.


WHAT DO KIDS LEARN FROM THIS ACTIVITY?

Your child will learn about art, storytelling, and spatial awareness. They will learn how to express their creativity through drawing and coloring, and how to create a scene or a story using figurines and objects. They will also learn about spatial awareness as they arrange the objects in the diorama, understanding how to create a sense of depth and perspective in a three-dimensional space.
