Bright Horizons Ely Day Nursery and Preschool have used the wet British summer weather to great effect by mark making in the rain.
Children at the nursery sprinkled powdered paint on the ground and then watched what effect the rain would have on their colourful creations as part of the company’s Growing Writers and Growing Scientists programmes.
The activity also enhanced the children’s knowledge of colours and enhanced their ability to mark make in the rain.
“We enjoy watching and helping the children develop their artistic skills and mark making in the rain was a good way to encourage this,” nursery manager Jess Knowles said.
“The children were able to use their initiative to create a wide range of images.”
