This fun and messy activity can be completed by children of all ages, it can also be used to help children learn their colours and shapes.
You will need:
- Various colours of paint
- Different size and shape mega blocks
Pour the paint into trays and place one mega block of each size and shape into each tray. Give each child a piece of paper, then holding the top of the blocks they can print their chosen shapes and colours onto the paper.
Whilst completing this activity with older children as a group you could talk about the colours they are using and also the shapes of the blocks. The children can also be involved in a simple sorting activity where for example all the red mega blocks are used in the red paint only, blue blocks in the blue paint etc.
