Sometimes the preschoolers in my class want to do something new. They get sick and tired of the same old stuff. Playdough, puzzles, manipulatives . . . boring! That’s why I’m glad to have found this cute idea from Crafty Morning for painting with Pom Poms. My preschoolers loved it and even though some of them treated them like paint brushes instead of pouncers, they still had a lot of fun trying something new.
It couldn’t be simpler. All you need is:
You could mix it up a little and use different sized pom pom’s too!
We just gave the kids red paint on a paper plate. Since I teach 3 year olds, they have a tendency to mix paint, so we made it simple.
Then we taught them how to pounce the pom pom’s on the paper, even though some of them just spread the paint around 😉
This was a fun activity for them We have them hanging on the preschool wall for all to see their hard work!
The heart we painted I found in one of our old clip art books. But HERE is one that I think would work well with this project. Just right click and choose print or save.
Have fun creating with your kids!
