Last week we mixed paint to match the different shades of honey. We painted with some of those shades on a large piece of butcher block paper.
When the " honey" was dry we invited the children to stamp hexagons on the yellow shades of paint to create honeycomb. They used a brush to apply the paint to the sides of the wooden hexagon and then stamped them on the paper. They really took their time stamping the shapes next to each other trying to create a mural that really resembles honeycomb.
We aren't sure yet what we are going to do with our honeycomb mural. Maybe we need to make some bees!
