Rock and Roll Shamrocks!

A fun and easy way for toddlers to explore with paint is marble painting. Find a box and put some paper on the bottom of the box ( I used shamrock cut outs), add some marbles dipped in paint to the box and move the box to roll the marbles with paint over the paper. Since, we were making shamrocks we used blue and yellow paint as the paint mixed together it magically became green.

Lizzy liked this activity. Her favorite part was dropping the marbles into the paint cups and watching them roll in the paint. Lizzy is starting to think painting is a daily activity like play dough and drawing. Lizzy will ask to play with play dough and draw everyday and lately she has been asking to paint everyday.
