When it comes to painting, the messier the better, as far as Miss Four is concerned. She loves to splat, drip and use her hands when painting. I thought rubber band flick painting might be up her alley and it turns out it is!

For this painting experience, you need a shoe box, rubber bands, paint and paper. Place a piece of paper in the shoe box and then place elastic bands over the box. We used five bands which seemed to work well for the size of our shoe box.

Paint over the bands – a generous amount of paint works best. Then, place your finger under the band, pull the band up and let go. Watch as the paint splats all over theĀ paper.
