"how high dare you climb" art.
We challenged the children with the fear of height - how high did they dare climb? On the step, on the chair, on the table or all the way up the step ladder?
ALL the children wanted to go up the step ladder - ALL but one went to the very top - one child was almost at the top!
First they chose a scary colour of paint - and this was dripped down onto the paper below. The idea was to have a lots of splats - but the children were far too interested in feeling the paint - so when everyone had challenged their fear of height (which there did not seem so much of - but maybe we simply need a bigger step ladder?) then they got to mix up the colours to a new scary colour!
night, dark black
monster blood green
I think we might need to do something similar again - climbing up the step ladder was POPULAR!
