Today's activity is Science, PSHE and Art all rolled into one.

 

We are going to try one of Mrs Rushton's favourite activities.

 

Start by watching the video.

Eating a rainbow every day is a way to keep your diet healthy and balanced.

 

Watch the videos about eating a rainbow!

Today we are going to explore colour in food. 

 

You will need some art supplies, a grown up, a blindfold and some foods that are all the same colour. 

 

e.g. white foods - milk, extra strong mints, ice cream, salt, sherbet.

 

Wear the blindfold and ask your grown up to feed you one of the food stuffs without letting you know what it is. 

Once you have finished tasting, draw what you tasted. e.g. a creamy texture might be represented by swirly patterns where a sharp taste might be shown as zig zag lines. You could even think about whether to represent the taste and texture with cool or warm colours. (We will be looking at cool and warm colours in tomorrow's blog challenge!)

 

Remember, you are not drawing what the food is but what it tastes like. Your image should be very abstract.

 

When you have finished, try again with a different food.

 

You should end up with a selection of very different abstract drawings or paintings.

As an additional activity, you could follow the recipe below to create your own healthy meal.

Please share your completed work on the blog or by email.
