A messy art activity, teaching kids geometric shapes and colors while enjoying and having fun. All you need is
- large white cardboard
- watercolors (washable ones)
- geometric shapes paper cutout (circle, oval, square, rectangle, triangle, rhombus)
- toy hammer
Squirt a generous amount of different colors of paint all over and cover up each one with a geometric shape.
Let the kids name the shape and predict which color is underneath, then splat it with their hammer. The color splash will prove them right or wrong!
This educational activity in the same time so fun and crazy. You will hear so much laughs and cheers during the process. It helps your kids practice their knowledge (geometric shape and colors) and develop a love for the creative process, enlarge their brain and set them up as creative thinkers in all walks of life. Without forgetting the use of the hammer requires fine motor skills; let’s exercise those tiny muscles!
Once your kid is done smashing all the shapes, pull them off to reveal an awesome art piece to frame!
It’s a messy game, better be done outdoors if you have space and if not, cover well the things you want to protect from the paint splash. Try not to stress about the mess and let your kid enjoy. Of course shouldn’t be a war zone as well, set the rules and boundaries and leave the space for exploration and amusement. It’s washable paint at the end!
