Golf Ball Art for Toddlers

Zoom and I did a little art project today. We used golf balls and finger paint and created some pretty cool paintings.

For supplies, we used finger paint in primary colors, a box leftover from Christmas gifts, and paper. I cut the box so that it acted like a tray to hold the paper.

We used some paper bowls to coat the golf balls with paint.

And then Zoom picked which colors to use, and we dropped in the box, and let ’em roll!

He held one side of the box, and I held the other. We laughed as we raised the sides and made the ball roll around. We also talked about what color we were using, and talked about putting the ball “in” and taking it “out” of the box.

We finished four before it was time for dinner!

What fun projects have you tackled this week?

    Thank you – I think this will morph into a Valentine’s Day card project in the next week or so 🙂

    This is awesome! And I don’t know that it’s just a toddler project, my 10, 9 and 6 year olds would get a kick out of it! I found you through Kara’s Creations. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    Thanks, Crafty 🙂 It was a super fun project, and it makes some great art. I think you could probably come up with something cool to put in a child’s room, or make as gift wrap.
