I am a big fan of messy painting activities, lots of shaving foam & powder paint & finger paints. Early in the school year it is all just about the process - so the children are just encouraged to play with paint, exploring how it feels or moves on the table. I always enjoy seeing children who don't normally enjoy getting messy really embrace using finger paints.
This month the colours we are concentrating on are pink & blue, sadly the blue finger paint had all dried up but we had lots of white & a little red left, so the children had fun mixing the 2 colours to make pink.
At this stage of the school year, I knew most of them could draw in the paint or make interesting patterns that we could then 'capture' on a page to use a wall display.
