This is a very simple but messy activity for children of all ages, which can be completed individually or as part of a small group.
You will need:
- Large pieces of plain paper
- Sticky tape
- Paint in a variety of colours
Tape the large pieces of paper to the floor. Pour the paint into large shallow trays and place them around the outside of the paper. Let the children use their hands and/or feet dipped in the paint, to create their pictures. If you put enough paper on the floor a small group of children can do this at the same time. For smaller children who are perhaps unable to walk some paint can be poured onto the paper so the children can crawl through it and move it around with their hands more easily.
