Brain Building While Making Colouring Pens MORE Fun!

We’ve been playing around with pens and ways to make them more interesting. We’ve taped pens to coat hangers to make a pair of compasses and to rulers for rainbow drawing. We also tried three pens taped inside a cup to produce triple images!

It is lovely watching them play with the coat hanger compasses, discovering what happens with one pen also happens with the other.

The rainbow pens are taped in a line. It is tricky to get them level but worth it. She worked out how to use it fairly quickly.


The three legged cup is a nice idea and produces triple lines and images. I could almost see her brain expanding as she tried everything out!



Perfect for a wet morning!
