SPLAT Painting

Splat painting was probably the funnest thing we did this week.
We got to get outdoors, let off some steam & Splat paint EVERY where.

I lined the brick wall outside with large paper, sticking it up with blue tac.
I then got 4 large cups and mixed up some water colours with some water, so that it was a smooth yet runny consistency.

Using some water (pool) sponge balls, and some circular sponges dimples soaked them in the cups of paint and used all his might to throw them at the paper.
As the hit SPLAT they went, the paint effect was great, as was the sound when they hit.

He squeezed them, and practiced throwing them as hard as he could both over & under arm.
It was lots of fun and he got to burn off some steam.
The harder you throw them, the bigger the SPLAT.
I had a go & let off some steam pelting the balls at the wall, it was good Messy fun.

Happy Adventures :)
