Today we used the old charcoal from our fire which we put in an ash can at the end of the day. It was now cold and we wanted to see if we could draw pictures with it. The pieces were various shapes and sizes. Some pieces we could draw thin lines like using a pencil and other pieces we rubbed over the paper to create wider and lighter lines or areas.
Shelby used the thin small pieces to draw a helicopter. We all had fun making patterns on our paper with the charcoal.
It was great to discover that we didn't need to bring pencils and crayons to Nature Discovery to be able to draw - we can just use charcoal instead.
