|it started with used cooled coffee grinds, red, yellow, green black and brown paint|
|and the idea was to have a "mud-play" with the paint. This was to be the background for our International Mud Day sign.|
|It certainly was messy like mud - and the coffee grinds added a great texture|
|the children loved making patterns with their fingers...|
|which was quite magical in places where there was still traces of original colour that had absorbed into the paper before it all got mixed into brown...|
|the finished sign - the words were painted before it was fully dry - to add a sort of mixing-mess look...|
It dried well and it had a great structure and an almost sandpaper like feel to it.
|the sign in the window today as we celebrated International Mud Day one day early so we could play with mud with our preschoolers.|
