P Week- Painting w/ Pom-Poms

I thought it'd be a cute idea to paint for P week but not just paint with regular old brushes, I like to get a little more creative than that. We used pom-poms, the little round fuzzy things. That alone got the kids interested, but I thought it was also a good idea to use clothespins to hold the pom-poms. Less messy and less chance of the kids putting their hands in paint as well as an opportunity to get some fine motor practice in.

What you'll need:

  • Pom-poms
  • Clothespins
  • Paint
  • Something to put the paint on
  • Paper
  • A smock (optional)

What to do:
  1. Pick up a pom-pom with a clothespin.
  2. Pour some paint out on a paper plate.
  3. Dip the pom-pom in the paint, one pom-pom per color would be ideal.
  4. Hand the child the clothespin side and let them paint on the paper wherever they want with the painted pom-pom.
The finished product:
