Next we looked at drawing letters, and I wrote out his name and asked him to try and copy the letters. He's quite good at recognising the letters in his name, but this was the first time he attempted to write them out himself, just by copying and I think he did a pretty great job!
We used a lemon, onion, celery, broccoli, tomato and a pine cone to try some different shapes and the results were pretty good! Some worked better than others and we found that the less paint the clearer the patterns were, it was good to talk about what shapes we saw. I forgot to take pictures of the finished prints but will have to update that!
Do you have any suggestions of other good things to try and make patterns?
