Take about 15 kids between 0 and 6 years of age.

Go outside on a perfect Scottish summer's day (I know, they are rare).

Ask them to find natural items of every colour:

Spread out some paper and poster paint:

Let them have fun and let their imagination take off.

Read a story about colours (The Blue Coat from The Story Tree).

Then, go to the pond to wash off the paint. Or to go fishing. Or to splash and squelch the mud/catch tadpole/play pirates etc.

Ingredients for a perfect day.

Thank you so much for joining in the Carnival of Outdoor Play. It's so good to take books along to read them in a different setting isn't it. And lovely to have a pond or river to wash painty hands off in. :)
