Paintbrushes, sponges and paint stamps should be available for the children to use to make individual patterns. All children should be included in this activity regardless of age and ability.

Show an understanding of diversity and inclusive practice. D7. As an Early Years Practitioner I would ensure that all children feel welcomed, accepted, are listened to, valued and that all children even the one with a disability are accept regardless of their ability. All children no matter of their background, race, religion, gender or a child with a disability should be treated all the same.
