To set up this project I put a piece of paper inside each baking tray and put three rubber bands around each tray. I started by painting the rubber bands with the paint then the girls snapped them to make the paint splatter all over the paper, but very quickly the girls wanted to add the paint on their own to do it again and again and again.
Emily loved snapping the rubber bands and even used both hands to do two at a time. They experimented with moving the rubber bands around on the tray and even sliding the paper out and around the other way to mix the colors.
Emily’s finished painting.
All the kids from 21 months to 5 years old loved this activity, except Juliette who was in a mood! Oh well maybe next time :)
