Floor Painting!

I had a really fun Art and Music class yesterday, and I would like to encourage everyone to try what we did in class at home. Rather than using tables, I decided to switch up some things and have my class paint on the floor. My intention was for the class to trace the outline of their legs on the floor, and then glue on shoes and other fun decorations. However, it turned into finger painting on the floor, and boy was it fun! Art can be done anywhere, so this week try and have your child finger paint on the floor. You can lay down some newspaper in the kitchen and put some construction paper out and let them have at it! It will be exciting for you and your child, and you can just toss or recycle the newspaper when you are finished. Floor is the new table. Have fun!

  • Newspaper
  • Construction paper
  • Paint
  1. Lay newspaper down on floor. 
  2. Put construction paper on top of newspaper for your child to paint on. 
  3. Pour paint in a bowl and have child paint the construction paper with their fingers. 
  4. Get messy! Have a great time!
