Quills and Ink

A few years ago L showed an interest in writing with quills and ink. Rather than spending money trying to buy some quills and ink in a shop or online we went to the local park and hunted for feathers. Once we found a couple of suitable ones we brought them home. I used a scissors to cut ‘v’ shapes into the bottom of the feather to imitate a pen nib. Then we dipped the feathers into black paint and tried to write and draw on to paper.
