Cave Painting

Cave Paintings!


In outdoor learning, the children had a go at some cave painting - Stone Age style! 

There were caches of items that could be used to create the pigments for their paints. Common items such as raspberries, cherries and blackberries; slightly rarer items such as chalk and charcoal and the rarest of all, some lapis lazuli (blue chalk).


The children created their own brushes using sticks and attached leaves, grasses or twigs for the bristles. Although we made these, some children got fully into it and used their hands too! 


The children crushed up the items and added a bit of water to make their paint. They were then let loose!
