The Butterflies went on a trip to the local forest to take part in some mud painting. They used scoops and to scoop up mud and add it to a bucket. Children worked collaboratively to fill the bucket with mud. Once it was full the children added water to create their mud paint. Sticks were selected and children used the natural materials to make marks in a new way. Children talked about the consistency of the mud and the marks they made. Giving meaning to the marks sch as "it's a tree".
