Colourful dung beetles!

Ru and I were amazed to find that dung beetles aren’t just black! Dung beetles can be really colourful…

…which is perfect for our dung beetle playing pieces because each player can choose which colour they would like to be!



We decided to paint our dry clay playing piece lots of different colours using acrylic paint. First we painted the clay with white paint in order to seal it and give a good base for the next layer of paint. Then we tried out some sparkly paint too!

It’s easy to imagine a game with a whole rainbow of dung beetles!
