rainbows all around…

today was an extra active day here at our house…

we read some great books and then everyone wanted to take a turn doing our art activity; there’s nothing like a little painting and printing to start off a long weekend in lockdown!

this activity is super fun and easy and great for all ages.  kids as young as 18 months can even give it a try (with a parent’s help, of course)- and even the teenagers in our house had fun with it.

materials-

  • an old cd or large jar top
  • washable liquid paints
  • paintbrush
  • lots of paper
  • scissors

instructions-

  • cover the shiny side of the cd with generous amounts of paint
  • we painted large stripes of each color for a more “rainbow like” effect
  • flip the cd over and print on the paper
  • twist cd on paper to create a swirled effect
  • allow to dry thoroughly and then cut out round prints
  • use as notecards or gift cards or even fancy to do lists
