What brought about this great (but apparently not very original) idea was the book Old Black Fly . Great rhyming text takes you through the alphabet as the fly lands on the crust of an Apple pie and makes the Baby cry. What we really love though, are Stephen Gammell's illustrations. Especially the one at the end when Old Black Fly is not going to be bothering anyone anymore, if you know what I mean.
To start I took a long roll of paper and put drops of paint ("flies") all along it.

How've you been getting messy this week? I'd love for you to link up. I'll be sharing your ideas throughout the week on my facebook page and the Kid's Co-op Pinterest Board (being seen by over 285,000 followers is not too shabby!).
