A day in a cardboard cave.
It was dark and quite cool (the school's heating was on the blink!) which added to the atmosphere. There was a "fire" - or LED lights, tissue paper and twigs - to add to the feel and give us a little bit of light to do our drawing by. The children were all really excited to be given walls and floors to draw on. There was lots of energy in the room and the first couple of groups seemed to need to make marks on as many bits of wall as they could before settling down to some more focussed drawing. The installation has been left up at the school for a few days, so parents, staff and other children can come and take a peek at the cardboard cave.
We were thinking of family sayings and positive messages like "Chin up" and " Be yourself". This one is "You'll never walk alone" We also had " Go-Go Power Rangers!" We masking taped them together and strung them up in the school to send our positive messages out into the world. We are going to develop these and pick some to make into fabric flags that will hopefully last a bit longer!
