This is a very messy activity. Be prepared for paint to splatter but the results are beautiful.
You Will Need:
- 3 white card stock paper
- Rubber bands
- Tempra Paints
- Paint brush
Place a dozen rubber bands around a tray. This works beautifully on your child’s thenar muscle strength as well as bilateral coordination.
Slip in a blank sheet of paper inside the tray.
Use a paintbrush to dab paint across each rubber band.
Remove the blank sheet of card stock paper from the tray and replace by a blank sheet of white card stock paper.
Use the back of a clean paintbrush (or pencil) to flick the rubber bands and splatter the paint! (If you wish to minimize the mess of the splatter, create a shield with a cardboard box.
Carefully remove the painting and place another clean card stock paper ON TOP of the rubber bands and press down to create another painting.
Three beautiful Messy masterpieces! Love it!
