Rainbow Tree

With some of the children meeting for the first time today I wanted an activity that was fun but within which they could get to know each other. This activity involving painting a tree branch was perfect!

After going to the park to investigate available branches the children each chose a colour of acrylic paint, we collected our brushes and ventured out into the garden. The children quickly got to work on their painting. 

They began chatting about what they were doing and with very little prompting began to share the paints so each child could try the different colours. We talked about the high and the low branches and they worked beautifully together to ensure all areas of the tree were covered.
