Pattern printing & finger painting

Day 38 of #65daysofsummer

We got the paints out today along with some wee animal-shaped sponges. The children made patterns and shapes with them and tried their hands at mixing new colours and working out new combinations.

Have you got any old sponges you could cut into shapes? Lots of other household items make great stamps or alternative brushes too: old pieces of material, potatoes, string, dry pasta and rubbers are just a few you might have to-hand.

It’s fun to test different items to see what shapes and patterns you can create. Why not have a go one rainy day?
