::: painting inside the bottles
When the children are looking for something new to do with paint, we relish the challenge to come up with something a little bit different.
Here we gave the children some clear bottles and squirty paint.
They added squirts of different coloured paints to the insides of the bottles.
Naturally they chose to add several different colours.
Next they rolled and shook and tipped and rolled …
until the paint whizzed all around it.
You don’t want the paint to be too thick or it doesn’t go anywhere. We needed to water ours down a little.
It’s a good idea to pop a bit of tape over the end of the bottle as the children are bound to tip it upside down so the paint can run down the sides!
It is sort of messy play without the mess!
Don’t they look great?
