Do you remember doing ‘Squishy Painting’ when you were a kid? I know I sure do! For such little effort you get such great results!
The kids just love to squish, squelch & squash the paint between the paper! It makes for some great sensory play!
We’ve added a bit of a ‘twist’ to the old school ‘Squishy Painting’ and have added googley eyes and pipe cleaners to make SQUISHY PAINT CREATURES!
You will need:
Paint (at least 3 different colours for the best effect…we used this super cool fluro paint!)
White paper or card
Dollop on globs of paint towards the centre of the paper
Fold your paper in half
Squish, squash & squelch the paint all around the paper
Unfold your paper to reveal your masterpiece
Add on googly eyes and pipe cleaners to create your CREATURE! – you won’t need any glue for this if you do it whilst the paint is still wet : )
I think this one is my favourite…we named him ‘Fly Guy’….we also loved ‘Mrs Broccoli Head’ too!
That’s the best part about this activity, there will never be one the same!
