Getting into Shape for the Future!
Developing creative potential
Clear shapes and colours are inspiring

Children are always following their inner impulses. Their innate curiosity and creative potential only have to be “teased out” and maintained. So that they can fully realize their urge to discover and their delight in designing, they need a reduced learning environment. Focusing is the keyword. The aesthetic materials are limited to what is essential. These feature clear colours and simple geometric shapes with a high recognition value.

According to Fröbel, creative materials such as arranging materials or their contemporary version as window films are highly stimulating, encourage learning processes, and allow knowledge to develop. Children can delve deeply into their self-selected play learning environment. Here the true wealth of the creative materials is revealed: With each playful experiment, variations grow from simple shapes into complex structures.

Children will not only conquer the land of the imagination but also gain casually or through focused stimulations essential knowledge of mathematical symmetrical shapes and coloured aesthetic patterns and forms of life. And they will become acquainted with something valuable for the future: concentrated, structured, and independent work on an object.
