Flying Start @ Marjon Make Paint From Natural Resources!
This week, the children at Flying Start @ Marjon have had a go at making paint using natural resources!
The children started by practising their cutting skills using scissors to cut grass and flowers they found around the garden…
Then they put these into a pestle and mortar and crushed them all up…
..before adding water and flour to thicken the mixture, to create a natural paint!
The children really enjoyed this activity and loved adding different ingredients to their paint including mud and parsley!
They then used this paint with paint brushes or plants to create their own art work with some of the children painting the Gruffalo from their current story, whilst others painted horses and dinosaurs!

Flying Start @ Marjon Explore Farm Shop Role Play!
The staff at Flying Start @ Marjon have created a wonderful role play area for the children to explore, of a farm shop and potting station!
This is a fantastic chance for the children to explore the idea of planting and growing produce, whilst also exploring the role play of a shop environment!
The children have also got involved with some planting of their own with soil in tyres – they have really enjoyed getting stuck in and messy, using the rakes and trowels!
What amazing fun exploring, gardening, and role-playing!
