Beautiful Oops – Mistakes Happen

Mistakes Happen

Years 1 and 2 children enjoyed an unusual task during Children’s Mental Health Week. They were asked to spill, smear, smudge or tear some paper. Then they had to turn it into an animal or something else. The idea was inspired by the book ‘Beautiful Oops’ by Barney Saltzberg.  The notion is to get us thinking that we all make mistakes and it’s ok to do so.  When we do, it can be an opportunity to learn something new.  Why don’t you watch Barney’s fun video clip:  Beautiful Oops
