Snap, Baby,Snap! (a very messy painting project)

Some of you may have seen snap paintings on other blogs or possibly on Pinterest.  There were many different ways to make them, but which ever way you decide to do it, it'll be fantastic art!  Oh, yes and very, very messy!!

I wrapped rubber bands around a tray, slid a piece of construction paper underneath, squiggled paint all over and SSSSNAP! 

 I couldn't help but show you some of the works of art up close and personal.  Don't you love how each are so different? 

This is a small example of the mess we made.  See those splatters on the table?  Well, lets just say the floor got a bit more colorful!  As did our faces, arms, hair and shoes! :)


  1. Love this, I am always looking for new, messy activities to try out, can't wait to do this, Kierna

  2. This is one of my favorites:) We did it too but I made the mistake of trying it indoors!

    1. We did, too! Now I know for next time this will be a great outdoor art activity. :)

  3. This is on my "to-do" list! It looks like fun! We'll take is outdoors, probably, since our classroom is carpeted! :)


I'd love to hear what your thoughts are...leave a comment! :)
