Playing Along - Continuing Our Spring Mural

The girls and I are playing along with everyone over at Childhood 101 We Play.

I promised you I'd give you a look at our spring mural as we continue to work on it, adding things here and there. We've had two more days creating and glueing since my last spring mural blog post .

Yesterday Miss M was in the mood for creative arty fun so she spent the afternoon making various spring things to stick on our mural. The fun did start though with Miss H and I working on the rainbow together, which Miss M then finished off. We just had to add a spring rainbow after seeing a most beautiful rainbow follow a spring shower of rain the other day.

Miss H added the simple things to our mural, like centres to her gorgeous patty pan flowers while Miss M thought to create the clouds, insects, a bird and a bird's nest.

So here it is so far....

The new things we added are...

  • tissues for the clouds
  • a pom pom for the centre of a flower
  • tissue paper + paper for a rainbow
  • yellow feather for a bird
  • crepe paper + pipe cleaners twisted to make butterflies
  • Easter stuffing (paper) to make a bird's nest
  • felt for the centre of a flower
  • google eyes to add to the mouse

Our mural continues to be a work in progress because we're still keen to add more animals and water life. It's going to be one very full picture when it's done. Spring has definitely sprung here in our play/ art room!

This is gorgeous! How are you getting the girls to pace themselves?! It's so lovely.

What a great idea, and I love that it is a WIP that will keep changing and evolving :)

Thanks Amanda and Debbie.

It takes the girls quite a bit of time to only do a few things so it seems to be going slowly Debbie. It will probably take us all of spring to do it!!

It is so beautiful. I love seeing it evolve.

I am so loving watching this grow and progress. How lovely to have something so special to mark and celebrate the season and for everyone to contribute to. Beautiful :)

And, like 'Aspiring Mum' I'm wondering how you are getting the girls to pace themselves. It's not easy keeping some level of control so that the finished piece looks good and not one big mash of 'stuff'. Well done!
