4) Paint ( with rolling balls)

Today's painting was inspired by a project the bean did this year with her Ms. Julia at school. This is the perfect painting project for little ones! Today was also the perfect day because cousin L came to spend the afternoon with us. Bean and L both selected the color paints they wanted from a bin i had, then I put a paper with their name on it in the bottom of a plastic bin. Next I poured a little bit of the colors they selected onto the paper and added 3-4 plastic balls. After putting the lid on tightly I gave the bins back to them and let them shake, push and pull to their hearts content. After they lost interest and moved on to something else I took the painting out to dry. Bee also did this painting (the photo is of her painting) and enjoyed shaking and pushing the bin and watching the balls move the paint around. Her almost 3 year old attention span is a little longer so she filled in more of her paper but overall the painting was a hit with everyone.
