Rockin’ and Rollin’ Paint – Part 2

We had such a good time painting with balls and ramps – we decided to try another ball and paint experiment – this time painting a canvas inside a crate.

Using most of  the same start materials from part 1, paint, balls, plastic containers for dipping – we added a painters canvas and a plastic crate to the mix.







Next we dipped balls into the paint and then dropped them into the crate.

The boys then took turns moving the crate about to make the balls roll around create different paint colors, patterns and textures.

Lastly the boys decided to squeeze paint directly into the box and have the balls roll around on it.  The result was a cool looking canvas (ok i’m biased as mom but hey it’s part of the job right?)

We had fun observing the patterns and color combinations and overall it was a great activity.
