Type of Challenge:
This is an Individual Challenge. Each member of your Patrol must complete this challenge and you must submit an image of each Patrol members’ poster.
- White card (project size) or canvas board
- Coloured craft paint - Christmas colours (light green, dark green, red) and mixed colours
- Narrow, medium and wide permanent marker to use for words
- Narrow paintbrush
- Soft paintbrush or mini roller
- Round dinner plate
- Round side plate
- Optional - 50cm shiny red ribbon
Place the dinner plate face down on the card or canvas. Drawn a pencil line around the dinner plate. Place the smaller plate in the centre of the circle you’ve already drawn. Paint or roll one hand with the dark green paint. Remove any excess paint. Print your hand around the circle (as shown). Wash that hand and carefully dry. Paint or roll that same hand with the light green paint. Remove any excess paint. Print your hand around the circle (as shown). Wash that hand and carefully dry it. Paint three fingertips with red paint and print around the circle (like red berries). Wash that hand and carefully dry it. Using the narrow paintbrush, paint a red bow. Alternatively, make a bow with the red ribbon and stick to the picture (as shown). Set aside to dry. When dry, you can write family names on each hand.
Using the the dinner plate, draw seven curves (as shown on the picture). Paint or roll one hand with the dark green paint. Remove any excess paint. Print each hand, one hand dark green and one hand light green (as shown). Wash and carefully dry your hands. Using the narrow paintbrush, paint a red star at the top of the tree.
Each member of the family chooses to paint or roll one hand with the paint colour they best like. Make sure everyone paints the same hand – either all left hands or all right hands. Every person must have a different colour paint. Remember to include your pets! When the paint has dried, write either your family name and year or just the words ‘Our family’. If you want, you can write each person’s name around the side edge of the canvas and the colour of their hand e.g. Lily (green).
To complete this challenge, you need to take a photograph of your tower and send it to your Patrol leader.
