Rhymes Nursery, Birmingham

Large scale mural exploring Healthy Eating concepts and the Lifecycle. Designed for pre-school children. I included interactive elements such as changing the shoes on the caterpillar so they can be used for a counting game, also ‘spot the difference’ images. The idea was taken from the book “The Hungry Caterpillar” and adapted to run around the nursery walls, the caterpillar grows as he eats healthy food (and a few sneaky chocolates) before going into a chrysalis and emerging as a beautiful butterfly. The best part was seeing the reaction from the excited bunch of toddlers who had been watching me paint it!
