::: mini snap painting
The children had a go at snap painting a little while back …
using a big, firm base and large elastic bands.
As we were preparing for our workshop on messy play we thought that the adult participants might like to have a go too. Rather than using just the one frame, which is then used by everyone, we decided to go mini sized!
We discovered some small strong boxes at Resource Rescue and firm white card which fitted into them perfectly.
We fitted some very flexible small elastic bands over the top, painted them and …
WOW! they were very effective, in fact we felt they worked better than the bigger elastic bands which didn’t have quite so much give.
Just watch out for that SNAP. It’s got a real SPLAT to it!
