A simple wax resist art activity – using water colour paints and paper, and a candle…
I had intended to do this with Leon and Maya, but as they were busy, I ended up doing it with Alfie. He was very excited about the ‘appearance’ of the invisible ghost, and enjoyed painting over them to find their faces.
As the thick candles were difficult for a two year old to handle, it meant that I had to do the drawing, but he could do the painting – and see the appearance of the ghosts (and pumpkins)! If doing this with older kids it would definitely make sense for them to draw their own pictures with the candle however.
Alfie also decided we needed a blue pumpkin!
