Outside in the garden the Toddlers have been exploring mark making and colour mixing using paint brushes, water and chalks.
The children used chalks to create different colours and types of marks on the floor, then used the paint brushes to mix the water with the chalk. They loved how the water changed the mixed the chalk colours together and how the colours changed the water pot too. This was a great way to explore mark making in variety of ways, allowing the children chance to identify colours and how colours together can make new ones.
