So I have been squirreling away on a new bumper issue of Play Grow Learn which is due for release VERY soon! In preparation for a sensory play feature in the e-zine, we’ve been having fun with a large playroom window covered in sheets of brightly coloured cellophane.
When I asked Immy if she would like to draw a magical wonderland directly onto the cellophane she jumped at the idea. So we grabbed the Sharpies (though any permanent marker pen would do) and she started out on a big, green cellophane sheet.
Drawing on green, with a green lawn straight outside the window made the artwork more than a little tricky to photograph but I am sure you get the idea! The cellophane is taped straight onto the window with sticky tape and once we decide to take it down clean up will be as simple as removing the cellophane – no scrubbing artwork off windows…though this particular window could probably do with a scrub 🙂
Invite my girl to draw a magical, rainbow coloured wonderland and you are guaranteed to see fairies! But I also love that she added a magical fruit tree blooming with different coloured fruits that clearly reflects the actual young orange tree we have growing in our backyard that you can see to the right of the photo above.
Giant flowers (on the left) and the warming rays of a red and purple sun drawn as the actual sun beamed through onto her creation complete this part of her vision. There are still another seven sheets of colour waiting to be adorned and I can’t wait to see what else she dreams up!
