Our boys and girls had lots of fun in our garden today further developing their gross motor skills. They collected lots of different materials and chose their favourite colour of paints to create their artwork.
The children chose lots of different sized brushes so that we could see the different marks they would make on our screen. We made lots of big sweeping movements with our large brushes and tiny little movements with our small brushes.
The children chose to paint some shells and pine cones which they then pressed and rolled onto the screen to see the beautiful patterns they made.
We mixed lots of our colours together and made “rainbow patterns”. The children discovered that when they mixed the blue, orange and green paint together it turned brown!
“It looks like waves on the sea”
”It’s a rainbow snake”
Of course the best fun of all was painting our hands and making lots of handprint patterns. We made lots of squiggles, lines and wrote our names with our fingers.
Brilliant work boys and girls!
