A volcano painting

I drew a black volcano outline with a felt-tip and Sunnyboy did the rest with paints, paint-dabbers, pastels and glitter glue.



This painting is the first page in our first Project Book, which is going to be all about volcanoes.

  2. Thank you SO much for this post! My kids love volcanoes, we did a heap of stuff on them a couple of months ago (see here: http://abunchofkeys.blogspot.com/2010/10/learning-about-volcanoes.html) We've just borrowed some more books from the library about them today so it's nice to have some fresh ideas :)
