Kids love to paint. It is the best way to express your feelings and emotions. It gives wings to your imagination and improves your creative skills. It helps you to learn and explore with colours.

So with the same thought we decided to explore something new this time and thus we decided to do coffee painting today.

Meanwhile draw a tree on a paper with the help of pencil or black sketch pen.

Then start colouring the tree with the help of brush.

Keep painting the tree and keep it aside for some time.
