Shaken Paintings

ages 2-4


White or light-colored 9 x 12 inch paper, empty clean Pringles can, 3-4 marbles, 3-4 assorted paint colors, spoon

Activity Detail

This art project is especially great for toddlers who love to shake and rattle things. Roll up a piece of white or light-colored paper and place inside a clean, empty Pringles can. Using a spoon if necessary, coat 3 or 4 marbles, one at a time into different colors of paint. Place them in the Pringles can as well. Let your toddler, shake, rattle, and roll the can, which will create a "painting." Take paper out of the can and let dry. Once dry, you can flatten it using books to weigh it down.

Another good idea is to use chopsticks. Just dip them in the paints and have a great time! My kids love this!!! -Randi
