|Feather art||The kids all picked a colour and painted it light to dark and then we traced feather patterns, drew on them with white pencils and paint pens and cut them out. It’s actually on pinterest if you would search feather mural.
I had no luck with the paint pens though, they were brilliantly white but they stop working fast and just drip globs.
Oh we actually used thin paintbrushes and white paint as well…the older students did who were better at it.
