My daughter loooooves the slide, what kid doesnt! So she was very excited about this paint activity. This was inspired by TinkerLab's Slide Drawing.
This weekend first thing in the morning, we gathered our materials — roll of paper, some balls, paints, bowls, painters tape, a scissor, baby wipes and a cardboard box — and went to the play area for some Slide Painting!
I first taped the paper onto the slide and Putti rolled the balls for a couple of times which enabled us to know where to keep the cardboard box to catch the balls.
Poured the paints into bowls and put the balls in it..
Later Putti had a 'Ball' rolling the balls dipped in paint down the slide. There goes the first one !
And then another and another....
She enjoyed the whole process a lot..
She did try to see if standing and throwing the ball made any difference. The balls would miss the cardboard box and land on the grass which got her very excited !!
Also tried leaning forward and rolling..
So we wrapped up and we’ll return again sometime for more.
The box which caught the balls had some nice patterns too !rolling tin cans or toy cars dipped in paint, but will have to wait for the end of summer!
