Pumpkin Watercolours

As we are approaching halloween I introduced a bit of pumpkin themed watercolour painting today. After using black glue to paint the faces of the pumpkins I let the boys loose with the watercolours. The black glue forms a raised edge that enables the children to paint inside while the face still stands out.

The children started off painting orange like the pumpkins we had looked at although others prefered to personalise their picture with some purples! The raised surfaces helped the older ones to enhance their fine motor skills through helping them paint within the eyes and nose.

The end result was some lovely colourful pumpkins to add to our display!
