Oranges and Lemons….

This week at Little ARTventurers we’re having tons of Nursery Rhyme themed fun – incy wincy spiders, humpty dumptys, pat-a-cake in sand and printing with oranges and lemons (say the bells of St Clements!)

Fruit printing is really simple for all ages, sensory (touch, feel and smell!) and can produce some fab colourful artwork!
