Morning Boys and Girls
I hope you are all well on this lovely sunny morning.
For the activity today all you will need is a paintbrush of some kind, a pot of water and some sunshine.
Painting with water is one of those activities that you will absolutely love to do and you can spend hours doing this over and over again.
Now because you are only going to use water you can paint anywhere your grown-up tells you to in your outside space.
What you can do
- You can explore and experiment with your mark making, creating different types of shapes, circles, swirls, squiggles and clouds. You can make them really big or really small.
- You can draw lines of different sizes, and talk about which one is short or which one is long. When you have drawn even more, you can then talk about which lines are shorter and longer when you compare them.
- You can write your name.
- Put lots of water on to your brush and see how far away you can flick your water.
- You can even paint your garden fence.
Now before I mentioned the word ‘magic’. I want you see what happens to the water when you paint in the sunshine. Does it always stay there ? What happens to your painting ? Where does the water go ? What does the sun do the water ?
Let me know how your magic painting goes and if you can answer any of my questions.
Don’t forget it is important to keep practising your number and rhyming skills everyday.
Thinking of you all, missing you lots.
