Texture Painting

Have you ever roller pin painted? I call it Texture painting, since we first did this while learning the letter T. (idea from Strong Start website.)

Materials needed:
rolling pins
sponges
rubber bands
textured cloth (kitchen towels?)
kitchen utensils
forks
paint
trays
paper

Wrap the rolling pins in rubber bands and the textured cloth and poured some paint into the trays.
Gently roll the rolling pins in paint and roll onto the paper. (This creates a texture on the paper.)
Do the same with the sponges and utensils.
Show them how to pull the fork tongs through the wet paint to make a design.

My kids love making textures this way!
