Apple Vs. Ball
I saw a couple of pins on Pinterest where people had painted by rolling pumpkins. Well, surrounded by apples after our trip to the farm, I thought - Apples roll... My toddlers are very excited about throwing and rolling balls right now so I thought comparing the two, apples and balls, would be an intriguing experiment for them. I should now state: this is the messiest project I have done in my 10+ years educating young children. Our dining room was COVERED in paint. I highly recommend approaching this activity outside or when you are in the state of mind to accept a big mess. However, they had an absolute blast once they confirmed that yes indeed, mom was okay with them rolling and throwing both apples and balls covered in paint. All I did was lay paper on the floor, put out a tray with different colored paint, strip them to their diapers, and offer them a basket of balls and apples.
Big Piece of Paper
Balls - Washable or Old
Paint tray or Plate
Lots of Cleanup Supplies - bucket of water, wash clothes, wipes, etc.
- Pass the balls and apples back and forth - Roll other items in paint such as pumpkins or corn cobs
