|Cardboard and paint - and lots of muscle power to squeeze out the paint...|
|the choices available were green, blue, yellow and white (the latter being an absolute must for the children) - all children in the group of five, that chose to be in the atelier this morning, chose to have all the colours avalable|
|it was interesting to see how body strength had a part in how much of each colour was squeezed out.|
|Then the MAGIC started.......it was interesting to see how some children this process was about movement, while for others it was watching how the colours mixed and made patterns|
|it was a also a challnge for two of teh children to fill the entire cardboard - something they had not done before - but were fully capable of hiding all the cardboard under the paint, and with pride... when encouraged to do so...|
|and for those who were quick to fill their cardboard there was time to make patterns with their paintbrush|
|step one finished.|
|another finished magic forest in progress|
Maybe some fairies will occupy this forest - as yet I am not sure how the fairy project is going to move forward... so this could turn into something very different... especially as autumn comes and the colour of the forest will change and will be no longer green - how will the children then react?
Time will only tell....
