Looking for a process art activity that’s bright, messy and loads of fun? Try out some SPLAT PAINTING!
What you Need:
- A long roll sheet of butcher’s paper/brown paper
- An outside space to lay paper flat (secure to the ground with tape or heavy objects)
- Paint (watercolors/watered down acrylics/washable paint)
SPLATterers – Here are some ideas to get you started
Rice in Pantyhose – Toddler Approved
Toothbrushes – Arty Crafty Kids
Pompoms and Watercolors – Fun a Day
Mallets and Cotton pads – Crafty Morning
Cut up sponge splat balls – Paging Fun Mums. These splat balls are great to make for using in water play too!
PROCESS/SENSORY ART – See the colours mixing, feel the paint against fingers, hear the splat hitting the paper, smell the paint…evaluate the marks as they’re made with different splatter tools.
GROSS MOTOR: Vary the size of objects (swinging/squeezing/throwing) for a gross motor activity.
SCIENCE: experiment using gravity (dropping splat balls from different heights) as a science activity.
