Painting With Ball Bearings, A Fun Idea For Kids
Do you need a fun painting idea to do with kids. Here is something that my kids love to do and it is never the same no matter how hard they try.
Ball Bearing painting is simple. All you need is a box lid, 3-however many ball bearings you want to use, paint (preferably washable), white paper and a kid to shake the box.
Put the paper in the bottom of the box lid, and then drizzle a little paint of many different colors on the paper. Set the ball bearings in the box lid and let a kid shake the lid. Moving it front and back and side to side to get the ball bearings to roll around and make really neat patterns. The more colors you use the more the patterns will be different.
Once the first page is done tip the box so all ball bearings are at one end, take out the old paper, put in a new paper, put paint on the new paper and roll some more! Might get kind of tireing but it is never boring.
