All you need are 12 children, 12 palettes with acrylic blobs of colour, some pots of water and a good selection of paintbrushes … But beware, if you put ALL your pots of brushes within grabbing reach, then all your brushes will get used!!
The childrens’ decorations are looking very festive, having thoroughly enjoyed painting their salt dough, the next step will be varnishing and tying ribbon on them.
The messy rating for this activity is 9/10
Allow plenty of time to wash the brushes!
We also started the Christmas school play scenery. This year’s production is ‘Creepy Crawly Christmas’. As you can see from the photo, we were busy painting giant flowers.
I’ve also sneeked in a photo of a costume design by a year 6 for the Macbeth play, which years 5 & 6 have been studying.
The Big Draw competition artworks were dropped off in the very lovely Gentlemans Row, Enfield. Here’s keeping fingers crossed they liked our entry.
