This week at Adventure School we made our own paint brushes and paint.
We found a stick for the handle and leaves and pine needles for the bristles. We tied them together using string.
We made paint by collecting blackberries, mud and grass. We added water and mixed using spoons. We had to squash the blackberries to get the juice out.
We made purple and brown paint. The grass didn't work very well and just made "water colour".
We used our paint brushes to paint on the paper that was attached to the trees.The brown mud paint worked the best
