A stormy sky

This was a bit of an experiment really.

It didn't quite work out as I hoped.  I thought that the paint wouldn't go on where there was wax crayon, but it did.  Anyway, here's the plan:

Take a normal white piece of paper.

Use wax crayons to draw a land or city scape.  If your children can do this themselves, so much the better, but for younger toddlers, do this bit yourself.  I used orange and green wax crayons to create heather, gorse and fern covered hillsides like those we can see out of the window.

Provide a small dish with a small amount of black and white paint and show your toddler how to finger paint the clouds.
