The wattles are flowering and we have seen them at Bush Kinder and along the nature strip as we walk to the Mobile Library. WE picked a sprig of wattle to put in a vase at Pre School and we used this to inspire some painting this week. The children enjoyed this and so we might try to paint some other native flowering plants in the next few weeks. WE did a blue ‘wash’ on white paper with a sponge for the background. We used the sides of thick card to make the stems and leaves and we used pom poms to print the blossoms.
