ACTIVITY 1 – MAKING MARKS
Exploring different marks on large piece of paper between two children. Begin with one single colour one child has a small brush and one child has a large brush, make as many different lines and marks with their brush. Explore holding the brush in different ways: dragging, lightly or pressing heavily.
PLUS ONE: add water to make the paint thinner.
