Mini Pumpkin Roll and Paint for the Win!
Roll and paint is a great way to paint and move at the same time. I set up this activity for all three of my little ones and they all loved it. Rocking nd shaking mini pumpkins around in paint to create unique and interesting art!
How to Set Up Pumpkin Roll and Paint
Grab your sensory bin or large Tupperware container. Tape a sheet of white paper on the bottom of the sensory bin.
Pour a few dabs of washable paint on the paper. Let your toddler or preschooler choose a few mini pumpkins and gourds and place them into the sensory bin.
Time to Paint
Invite your toddler or preschooler to grab the sides of the bin and rock it back and forth to roll the mini pumpkins and gourds back and forth through the paint!
