Mud Painting

The Ladybirds explored mud in a range of ways. 

They added different amounts of water to each bucket to change the consistency of the mud. 

The children mixed the water into the mud with paint brushes. 

Everyone practised using the mud to make marks on the paper. 

New vocabulary was introduced such as thick and thin to describe the consistency of the mud. 

A variety of marks were made such as circles and lines. 

The colour f the mud changed depending on the amount of water added. 

Children used their hands to explore the texture. 

It was a fun natural mark making experiment.
