Non-Toxic Kids Paint
Paper or reusable plastic plates
Fill paper plates or plastic reusable plates with paint. We choose to use color coordinated paint, plates and fly swatters to aid with color recognition. Tape paper to an outdoor wall or door. Let your child dip the flyswatter in the paint and smack the paper to paint.
Topics of Conversation:
