Making paint from chalk and household finds

It’s time to put your paint smock on!

On day four of our Wonders from the Earth digital school holiday program, we got creative with artist extraordinaire Claire Wildish.
Using goodies from your kitchen cupboard or garden, be inspired to make and create. You can get ready for this activity with an ingredients sheet.

In other exciting news, our Discovery Centre experts are here to help. Linda and James love answering any questions you might have about a rock, fossil or animal you've found. Send your photos and questions to

You can also download four special Ediacara fossil colouring in sheets.

Make sure you follow us on social media for other fun facts - you'll find us on FacebookInstagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube.
