we have tried many ways of painting/printing - but would like some new ideas . the childrens favourite is tight painting -

you cut a pair of cheap / used(but washed) tights in half then place resources in the foot of the tight - rice, pasta or dried peas etc into the foot of the tight - dip it into a tray of liquid paint then the children bounce the tight onto their paper - not too much paint is good as they can then see the print of rice, pasta etc

what is your childrens favourite way of painting/ printing?

ohhh, I think I'll have to give that I go....we've used tights to print onto & then wrapped the tights around wire coat hangers to make giant flowers in the garden.

 

Have you used balls & biscuit tins? Dip the ball in paint & then roll around a lined biscuit tin?

 

Our kids loved using the turkey basters I brought to paint on large pieces of paper. Water & food colouring work well with that one.

 

We have a selection of shoes that the kids can use to walk/paint in.....can't think off anything else at the mo....

 

Ohh & they seem to like adding things too the paint & using hands, ie sand, glitter etc...

used teabags soaked in paint and splatted onto paper from a height. (they do burst sometimes, but that adds to the texture! (If you don't want them to burst, wrap them in a nappy liner or wet wipe)
