Bouncy ball painting!

Over the last couple of weeks at some of our classes we’ve been exploring Circles – printing, puppet making, circle collages and lots more! One of our favourite activities has been bouncy ball painting – always a big hit!

Bouncy ball painting is a super simple activity to try at home with your own little artists. You just need a rimmed tray, some bouncy balls, paper and paint! Pop the paper on the tray, dip the balls in the paint, place the balls on the paper and get started! Get your little one to tip and move the tray to roll the balls across the paper and watch some fab patterns emerge!

Great for developing fine and gross motor skills, coordination, learning about cause and effect, colour mixing – and tons of fun too!… try using different size balls or textured balls – tumble dryer balls make some great patterns!

Welly boot printing …aka jumping in painty puddles!

The Little ARTventurers have been having tons of fun this and last week in Sunderland and Liverpool trying out welly boot printing!

As part of our Peppa Pig inspired sessions we’ve been jumping in painty puddles and making the most fabulous patterns with our welly boots!

How much fun does this look – now that’s Active art!!

Emily from ARTventurers Newcastle and Gateshead and Fiona from ARTventurers Sunderland – and Arty Bear!) had tons of fun chatting to lots of mums, dads, carers and gorgeous little people – and there were some very creative entries for our colouring competition!

It was a great day and we’re looking forward to next year already!
