This past month in the School Age room has been full of exploration of colour. First the children were exploring mixing colours together with water and food colouring to make different “Potions” and then they were noticing how the colours were spreading together on paper. I brought in a few pumpkins that I harvested from my garden and instantly the children decided they wanted to colour them! So, together we thought of how we would do this and the idea of melting crayons with a blow dryer along the top of the pumpkin came about! After we had done this, Terry came up with the idea to melt crayons on paper; this then brought the idea of taping crayons to a canvas and melting them that way! It has been a beautiful, colourful September in our room!
