Paint plastic wrap

I found this activity on Facebook, but I can't find the person who posted! I want to make sure that I don't take credit for this awesome activity! All I know is that we had a blast doing this.


Age recommendation: Toddler, Preschool

Materials: Tempera paint, clear plastic wrap, paintbrushes 

How to play:

  • We first flipped the kid's table in our playroom.
  • We then took our plastic wrap and wrapped it around the tables legs.
  • We added some of our paint onto a plate and started painting the plastic wrap. My toddler LOVED it. We have an easel which she uses, but for some reason, painting on this plastic wrap added a fun factor to it. 

Learning and Development: You can use this activity to learn colours, draw shapes, build on language by having great conversations with your child as you have fun painting! If you can get the table to be high enough, you can even have your child paint while being on their tiptoe's, which is a motor milestones for 2 year olds according to the CDC
