Messless Fingerpainting Bags
The children used fingerpainting bags today to practice fingerprinting letters and drawing designs without the mess of traditional fingerpainting. To make this activity we filled large, sturdy ziplock bags with paint (and sparkles in a few), zipped the zipper, and reinforced the bag with clear tape. The children were fascinated with how they could roll and smooth the bag. This activity appealed to a variety of our learners as it was both tactile and visual.
