My kids paint almost every day, so I'm always brainstorming new techniques. It keeps the kids interested in an activity that I feel calms them and allows them to express feelings in a positive way. It's also really fun to get colorful and messy, right?!
Using a few things we already had, we made a really neat rolling pin stamp to add to our daily painting hour! It was a huge hit!
Emma went to collect a few foam stickers while I grabbed the rolling pin and paints. (We seem to have an excessive amount of foam stickers, and I never buy them! Where do they all come from?)
I used some newspaper to hold the paint since you need a large area to roll the pin in. She actually enjoyed this step the most.
