Continuing on our theme of action painting… Kiddo recently did a whole lot of shakin’. (OK, that was cheesy) This is an art activity you can pretty much find in every preschool art book or website. It is frequently done with marbles, but since we just did that I thought we’d try poms and hardware (soft vs. hard).
All you need is a container (we used a yogurt container, one book suggested an oatmeal canister, which is a lot bigger), some stuff to shake, paint and paper cut to size.Drop in a few items.
Or all of them.Add some paint and Shake Shake Shake
From personal experience I can confirm that if you do not put the lid on tightly, the contents will, in fact, fly everywhere.
