The next step was taking those round autumn objects and seeing just how far in the paint they would roll!
As the children experimented with the objects (pumpkins, apples, walnuts, acorns, etc.) they noticed that the smaller, lighter objects rolled much further than the heavier, larger objects. This lead to a discussion about what objects went far on the paper and who could roll the furthest. Everyone wanted a turn!
And of course, like any other messy activity, it turned into finger painting by the end. But according to one blog we love to follow, that's the sign of a great activity!
