Spray Paint Rain

I have a few bottles of spray paint, both big and small at my kids disposal in his art room. For big spray bottles, I hung up a few large sized chart papers (construction paper) on his easel.  These are great, not just for the size but this paper can withstand a heavy dose of spraying without crumbling. If I run out of some, I just turn it around! 

Random spraying on a large canvas is so organic! Hence my 3 y.o. has been doing it a lot lately!

A bit of spraying on his face too!


I gave him a couple warnings to avoid spraying in his eyes- so he just started painting with a brush!

This one looked like "rain", so I brought it down from the easel the next day and asked him to stick some cotton balls to make "clouds".

  3. I'm dropping by from Share Your Cup link party. This is such a wonderful idea. Initially, I thought that a 3 year old was a tad young for this kind of thing. after seeing all of your wonderful pictures, I've changed my mind. It would be a fabulous activity!

    I have a link party that I am trying to grow. I invite you to share this idea (and a couple of others) at my Grandma Ideas Sharing Time link up at http://grandmaideas.com. I think my readers would LOVE this idea, too.

    My linkup is open Wednesday through Friday at midnight. I hope to see you there!

    I also have a giveaway where you can win 3 movies (Woman in Gold, Big Eyes, and The King's Speech) and a $25 gift certificate. I invite you to enter my giveaway. (There aren't too many entries so you have a great chance of winning!)

    All the best,
    Nina

    1. Hi Nina, 3 is the perfect age for spraying! i.e. if they follow some rules such as no spraying on the walls ! I missed last week link up, but I'll stop by this week:)
