Blots and Blots of Paint!

This week, the children in Nursery have been making marks with paint by using pipettes. They had to learn how to use them, with their teachers helping them to squeeze the handles, dipping them into the paint pots and then releasing the handle to suck up paint. They then had a lot of fun squeezing the handle again, and watching the paint squirt and drip out onto tissue paper, creating wonderful patterns with blots of paint. Using the pipettes is quite tricky, so it also helps the children to improve their fine motor skills!
