Colours In Nature

I challenged Maya to find all the colours of the rainbow within our garden and she came up with a pretty good selection…

Which then led us to read this fantastic book which is all about planting flowers of all colours of the rainbow, and watching them grow.  And this book then led us to this….

…. potato printing colourful garden of flowers!

Later orange and purple flowers were added, after which the inevitable took place…

… Maya mixed all the colours, started hand printing and soon covered the whole paper with a dark purple brown paint…

… which is exactly what Alfie was up to the whole time!

One forgets how much kids love to cover their bodies with paint!
