Make A Picture Using Painted Balls

Children of all ages will enjoy making different patterns with the paint.

You will need:

  • Large pieces of paper
  • Trays
  • Paints in a variety of colours
  • Balls


Stick the large pieces of paper to the floor either inside on lino or outside is best. Fill the deep trays with different colour paints and place around the outside of the paper. Provide the children with a choice of balls, depending on their age you could use marbles, ping pong balls or plastic balls from a ball pool. Children can dip their ball into their chosen colour and roll it across the paper to make different patterns.

Older children can play in small groups and roll the balls between their friends and make up their own fun games.
