Wax relief painting

As both the boys are still not fully recovered from what we think might be swine flu, but also just may be a nasty virus, they are not allowed out of the house and are getting a little stir crazy.

Even the garden was out of bounds for most of today due to torrential downpours, so I decided to do a really simple art project with them.

I took a candle and drew a picture (very simple picture, as I am no artist) on to some paper and then gave them free rein with the water colour blocks. They loved seeing what was coming out, although they did have a tendency to make the colour a little transparent.

You are possibly wondering were MiniMads specs are – well he has broke them again and until he is better there will be no visit to the optician!
