WATERPAINT MURAL [From: Artmaking]
Written by: Jantje Blokhuis-Mulder [Jantje is one of the creators of KinderArt®]

Age:

2-5 years

Activity Summary:

Little ones can use spray bottles, tennis balls and other non-traditional painting tools to create a large scale outdoor mural.

What You Need:

•A large roll of paper.
•Shaving brushes.
•Foam brushes.
•Sponges.
•Spray bottles.
•A warm day outside or a covered work area indoors.
•Water-based paint in the primary colors (red, yellow and blue).
•Containers for the paint.

What You Do:

  • Make a wall or floor mural together.
  • Either lay the paper on the ground or attach it to a wall or hang it from a clothes line.
  • Mix up some trays of tempera paint in the primary colors.
  • Put one object in each tray, a shaving brush, a foam brush, a tennis ball.
  • Children can let the tennis ball drop on the paper and make a big color splash (children should nt be encouraged to throw the tennis ball if the paper is hanging rather than laying on the ground).
  • Paint can be put in a spray bottle and sprayed on the paper.
  • The colors will run and blend into wonderful designs and shapes.
  • Let the mural dry and hang it up and admire it.
