We loved jingle bell painting so much that I thought we’d try using a similar technique but a different object! If you subscribe to our A Very Toddler Christmas Newsletter, then this activity isn’t new to you and you tried this last week… but I bet your kids will want to try it again!
We bought a package of plastic ornaments at Target last year that have been fun to explore and roll down ramps, so I thought we’d try painting with them.
Painting with ornaments is a great full body painting activity since it involves a lot of shaking and moving. Just turn on your favorite Christmas music and shake away!
All you need for this activity is washable paint, a few plastic ornaments, a big box, and some paper. We also used a paper plate with paint on it to help coat the ornaments.
Put some paint on a plate and roll your ornaments in paint a bit.
Drop the painted ornaments in a big box lined with paper and start shaking it! The designs the kids made were BEAUTIFUL and they wanted to just do it again and again and again!
