This is a fun and really simple way to paint. We used an older rolling pin to spread colors all over the paper.
Allow the children to squirt paint all over the paper.
Roll, roll and keep rolling.
I think I'm in love! Those are BEAUTIFUL! And a rolling pin? I've never thought of it as an art tool, but I'm loving it!Jamie @ hands on : as we grow
Oooooh I do love a good colour mixing opportunity Maria and rolling pins are one of the loveliest ways to do that ... irresistible as always! Donna :) :)

Another great post! I love your art ideas! This is another idea that would be great over at It's Playtime!. Hope you can come by!Rachele @ Messy Kids
Beautiful! I now need to search my local thrift stores for rolling pins to try this! :)Aleacia@Dilly-Dali Art
@ Alecia, please do! I have four of them:)
I've included this idea on my weekly Do Something! posting. Rachele @ Messy Kids
Love it! What paper do you use and how do you stop it from tearing?
This is soooo fantastic!!! I was wondering about the quality of your paper also. We have such thin butcher paper at my school. I think I need to order some heavier. Any suggestions??
We use cheap wallpaper lining paper, as long as it doesn't get TOO soggy it stands up to quite a lot of paint :)
AHHHH I'm SO going to do this with my boy!!! I hope he'll enjoy it as much as he enjoys using his feet to paint with lol :D
That would also make awesome wrapping paper. Just change colors for holidays or birthdays!
