Tree Branch Painting

The Butterflies used branches from the Christmas tree to create marks on paper. 

The branches were used as large paint brushes and the children dipped the branches into paint. 

The children talked about the marks that they made. 

Giving meaning to the marks such as "It's a Christmas tree" and "It is spikey".

Colours were mixed together to create new colours and children talked about colours changing from lighter to darker. 

A wonderful way to use a natural resource for a creative activity.
