We have been looking at a variety of different ways and methods to paint over the last few weeks and today we are sharing with you painting using playdough tools.
So far we have explored:
Mess Free Painting
Finger Painting Lupins
Handprints- Daffodil, Bumble Bee, Spider
Footprints - Ladybird
Cherry Blossom Printing
Potato Printing Tulips
Painting on Foil
Shaving Foam Painting
Toilet Roll Printing
Why not work your way through the different methods and create your very own process art with your little ones?
To create your very own paintings using Playdough Tools you will need:
- A variety of paints
- A large tray
- Playdough Tools
I used A4 paper for this but next time I would probably look at covering the whole table with Easel paper. This would allow a great invitation for gross motor painting, stretching across the table creating marks. The A4 paper worked well however and they created some great marks!
Using a large tray like the one pictured above allows space to roll your tools into the paint. Try to select tools with different patterns they will give you a good selection of prints then.
Little N was a little hesitant to begin with as these were tools she is so used to using with playdough. With a little encouragement that was it. Sprinkling a variety of paints in the tray gave some fun rainbow prints on the paper.
I couldn't resist but to have a go myself! I wanted to experiment with different patterns:
Once they were dry I decided to get creative once again and add more colour using crayons and shading. This would be great for older children! You could also use your dried paintings to create characters and funny faces within each shape.
It was a fun way to explore different shapes and patterns. I am looking to set this up again using cookie cutters.
