autumn leaves + cow

Printing today with the FS2's (4&5 yr olds). Using pre-cut stencils and red and yellow paint we sponged autumn leaves. The children noticed that red + yellow = orange and managed to create some quite effective prints. We used thin paper to print them on so hopefully they'll crinkle a little for added effect. We'll cut them out once they've dried and use them as part of our seasonal display.

Whilst the children are registering I generally do a few quick sketches. Here's one of todays. I've titled it 'Polka Dot Jersey' (a play on the link between the King of the Mountains Jersey in the Tour de France and a spotty Jersey cow !!).
