Joseph's Coat Of Many Colours

This week we learnt about the migration of people from Mesopotamia into Egypt. We read the story of Joseph and his coat of many colours so we decided to make our own colourful coat for the dress up box.

We used damp cotton and liquid fabric paints so the colours would run into each other and mix together on the cloth. We learnt lots about colour mixing along the way.

I cut out a head hole and stitched up the side to make a simple coat. Here they are modelling their creations.
