I've been trying to remember all of the great ideas Owen's teacher has so I can re-create them for him over the summer when we're looking for new ways to pass the time at home. This Golf Ball Painting was part of a "daddy unit" this week at school (the sensory table included shaving cream -- fun! and messy!). The activity was so much fun that Owen wanted to try it at home later that day, and luckily I had all the necessities on hand -- and I bet you do too!
Here's what you'll need:
- a disposable roasting pan or box
- construction paper
- a muffin tin
- washable paints in various colors
- golf balls
- a bucket of water & a rag for washing (optional)
I think this activity lasted around 30 minutes, and ended only when we ran out of paper. He made about 6 beautiful pieces of art work! They would make a colorful matte inside a frame with a picture of Daddy & kids for Father's Day or even folded to make a card!
I hope you enjoy this activity as much as we did!
