Recipe for a nice creative afternoon

  • 3 girls aged 9-10
  • pieces of calico
  • sharpies of felt pen
  • a straw
  • surgical alcohol
  • a plate
  • some paper tissue

Give a piece of calico to each girl or one big piece for the 3 of them depending on their negotiation skills or your patience. Did not trust either their skills or my patience, so a piece per person in order to keep peace!

With the felt pen, draw anything you want on the calico. Then dip the straw in the surgical alcohol, putting your finger at the end of it so you retain a bit of the liquid. Now let tiny drops fall on the calico. The colour is going to run, run, run… Let dry and send the girls to the swimming pool while tidying up.
