It’s been extra muddy in the garden due to all the rain we’ve had. We have been exploring it in different ways. The children decided they wanted to make mud paint, by mixing paint and mud together, they also used different utensils for marking with. Leaving an interesting texture on the paper once it had dried. Following on from this we made our own natural paint brushes, which made different patterns depending on what we used for the bristles. The favourite choice seemed to be the pine needles!
