But what to do with all these rocks. They are so beautiful on their own.
Adding some color seemed like a good ideas as well. I took the opportunity to talk about patterns with the kids and to make it more successful instead of paint brushes we used q-tips and tooth picks to add the design. To make the design more recognizable we used one color and mixed it with white to create a few values of that color and then throw in another light opposite color. So our colors were blue and peach or gold.
They make me happy everyt ime I look at them. The possibilities of patterns was so abundant and delightful.
Happy Pattern Making!!
