We make steam every morning while preparing our morning coffee. But how can it be used to move this massive machine? In this episode, we explore how engine...

Some lovely sketches, showing how a steam engine - similar to the River Don Engine - works.

This is a really simple activity that you can easily have a try at. All you need is a piece of paper, either colouring pens or pencils and some shapes to draw around. I did this activity with both of my children and I found it really relaxing.

Firstly, draw around some shapes onto your piece of paper. Try to get a range of different shapes. We used objects we could find in the house to draw around like bowls, glasses and boxes. Straight sided shapes are easy to draw if you’ve got a ruler. Make your shapes overlap so that you create many different smaller areas.



The task is then to fill in each section with a different pattern. I used some zentangle patterns – some ideas are given below. Zentangle is a calming art form involving using patterns in art as a way of de-stressing and reducing anxiety – I’m sure something we would all befit from at the moment!

The video below may give you some inspiration of the type of patterns you could use too.

Zentangle is usually made up of black and white patterns, but as you can  use coloured pens to create your design. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
