Wellie Boot Printing!

 Take one child (and a Mum!) in wellie boots, a tray of bright paints and lots of cardboard sheets.

 Dip feet in paint and walk, stomp, dance, jump and run to your heart’s content!

 Create a beautiful, rainbow, mess of colours.

 Examine the lovely patterns created from the prints and compare them!

 Find other things to dip and print with, or roll with!

 

Woo hoo! Jumping in colour puddles! (with a face painted as a butterfly- new obsession.)

 What a lovely end result! Abstract toddler art at its finest :-)

This activity is good for:
* creativity on a large scale
* outdoor play
* colour mixing and exploration
* examining the effect of printing with objects
* comparing big and small prints
* gross motor play: jumping, stomping, striding, tip-toeing, skipping
* having a HUGE amount of fun together (adult participation compulsory!)
