My girls always like getting messy when playing – well all kids do I guess! If you ask them what they want to do they will say: “painting!painting!” . Most of the time they just end up spreading paint on everything – paper, toilet rolls, pots,hands, face and sometimes even walls!
What would you need for such an activity:
- glue glitter
- lolly sticks
- any other things you might want to paint 🙂
Well this is mostly a sensory activity rather than a creativity one although you can very well create pretty nice art with it too.
I didn’t get any pics with my youngest as she was just wiping her fingers every couple of minutes…but she did play with it and every day since we done she keeps asking to do it again. She mostly mixed the glittery glue with some play doh. As you can imagine that piece got really hard after a while and she was quite disappointed. But she did enjoy squishing the glittery glue between her fingers so what else can you expect from a 2 year old 🙂
We used the lolly sticks to spread the glitter on the paper but to also spread the glittery glue on the sticks too as we want to make some picture frames soon.
It was a good activity for a sunny afternoon in the garden and we also play with proper paint and done some abstract painting.
