Fun Day Monday

Hello! Happy New Year to you… I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas and that you are ready to have lots of fun with your little one in 2014.

To get you started why not get the paints out and do some printing.

For this simple activity you will need the following:

  • Paper
  • Different coloured pre-mixed paints
  • A cupcake tray
  • A paint brush
  • Cotton buds
  • An apron

and all you do is:

  • Put the apron on your little one… this could get messy!
  • Turn the cupcake tray upside down and put blobs of different coloured paint on the flat surface of each upturned cup
  • Use the paintbrush to evenly cover the whole of each upturned cup
  • Give your little one the cotton buds and get them to draw a pattern on each painted circle
  • Now turn the muffin tray the right way round and push it with even pressure onto the paper
  • Hey presto, you have got your mega print…. have fun!
