Exploring Movement and Paint

Miss O'Keefe put out a great activity today for our children to use when exploring movement and painting. Children were able to use really neat wind-up toys and paint with them by dipping their feet in paint and then winding them up on paper. It was very entertaining to watch as we never knew where the little eggs would travel! You just have to see it!

What was great about this activity was that the children had to really experiment with the type and amount of paint they used with the hopping eggs. If the paint was applied too thickly, the eggs would stick to the paper and not hop. If there wasn't enough paint on their feet, they wouldn't leave a footprint trail.

Those little eggs made some amazing artwork!







Once the children tired of the painting, they raced the little eggs all around the room!
