Patrols are challenged to produce a painting, on theme. The "paint brushes" are their hands, feet, elbows or other body parts. The paintings will be judged on creativity, and different body parts used.

Risk assessment -
No running - there may be a slippy floor tonight, but try not to get paint on the floor.
Limit the body parts that they can use - clothes to stay on.
Beware of paint near eyes or mouth.
Use paint that is unlikely to (1) cause a reaction to skin or if accidentally ingested, (2) easy to clean up from (a) body (b) clothes, (c) furniture, (d) walls.
Clean up spills as they happen.
