Today I was inspired by flys! I feel like there is always at least 1 fly in my kitchen driving me crazy! So today as I was swatting at that fly I thought, it would be fun to swat paint with the fly swatter!
So we gathered up our stuff and headed outdoors for this activity!
The kids got to pick a couple colors and I just put a couple drops on the paper and let the kids slap away at the paint!
The kids found it easier to sit while they did this project. I think they felt they had more control then when they were standing.
It made a pretty cool print and the kids had fun trying a new technique of painting! I highly recommend this activity before the weather gets cold and you can't spend as much time outside!
After the kids painted till we ran out of paper I needed to get the paint out of the cement. So I got a warm bucket of water and a scrub brush and let the kids scrub up the paint! They had soo much fun doing this! I think I need to get them a scrub brush more often!
What activites are you trying to do outside while it is still nice?
