Rolling Pin Painting

 

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.

  8. 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??

    1. We use cheap wallpaper lining paper, as long as it doesn't get TOO soggy it stands up to quite a lot of paint :)
