Materials: Paint, Ziploc Bags, Tape
1. Open the bag and lay in on the counter, pour a small amount of paint using different colors on the bottom (inside) on the bag.
2. Close the bag and slowly turn in upright. Then tape it to a window, a wall, or another vertical surface at a comfortable height for the child.
3. Types of things you can use the Painting in a Bag for: drawing shapes, writing letters, numbers, their name, drawing pictures. This can be a parent-directed activity where you encourage them to do certain things, or a child-led activity where you allow them to do their own thing and be creative. I would encourage you to do a little of both.
Different sized bags can be used to make a variety of painting surfaces.
