splat painting (fly swatter painting)

Materials Needed:
  • fly swatter
  • paper (we used cardboard because we had it on hand)
  • tempera paint

This is a perfect activity to do outside - obviously the paint is going to fly!  Abby chose her colors of paint and strategically squeezed blobs onto the cardboard.

Swat away.

This is considered a type of action painting.  Great for those kinesthetic learners.  Great for the active child that is not usually into painting.
Here are some more ideas for action painting.  Splat painting idea was found here.

Even Eleanor had her turn.

And just for fun, my dinner tonight.

With this view.
