Large Scale Painting.
The Toddlers have been doing some large scale mark making, creating different marks by using our hands and feet!
We took off our socks and shoes, put out the huge paper and looked around to see what other items we could use to make marks. The children chose some Lego blocks and cookie cutters to see what shapes we could make. It was great fun getting all our favourite paint colours and glitter to explore the different textures and colours.
