Writing and painting with a feather

Recently my kids were very fascinated by a book where pictured 
was a boy writing a letter with a feather.
So naturally they wanted to try.

First collect feathers, (my cousin does "pigeon keeping" so we had lots of those) 

Then, simply give them some paint to dip it in and

magic is made.

As you can see they were super excited.

It was a bit of a challenge because they had to dip the feather in paint lots of times
in order to accomplish what they needed,

therefore, towards the end they just flipped the feather around 

and used it as a paintbrush.

And the beautiful art was created
