My first instinct was to have the children use coloured pencil to colour a light layer on the repeated pattern, and some did.....and they looked very nice......
But then in the back of a drawer, I found "BRUSHO". ( It probably has many other names in different places) I thought its watery qualities would be just the thing to use....... and it was.......
And now I can't put it down "BRUSHO RULES!"
SAY HELLO TO AUTUMN "BRUSHO" LEAVES
This talented child is only 5!
AND A LITTLE BIT OF HALLOWEEN
Some of me younger classes drew a spooky house first before the blew a tree shape
And they all enjoyed spraying the watercolour with the toothbrushes, although we did have a few sprayed the wrong way and had spotty faces for the rest of the day!
