Autumn Mark Making

Dolphins and Seahorses used their found Autumnal leaves to trace around, whilst, exploring and discussing the different colours they could see. The children’s familiar adult extended the activity by making miniature Autumn scenery, mark making tuft trays. The children were encouraged to select and use a variety of Autumnal objects such as pinecones and cinnamon sticks.
