Beware: MESSY Is An Understatement!

This week I really went for it.  I had a heavy duty rubber mallet and a room full of readily available testers.  I've been wanting to smack the crud out of some paint recently and figured this was the time to do it.  I rolled up my jeans, took off my shoes and put on my paint apron.  The kids dawned their over sized paint shirts and we went outside.  I rolled out a large piece of (medical plastic covering?) floor protector and away we went!

We had so much fun with this...but splatters really far and really fast!

  1. Oh my word, good for you! Looks like such fun! :)

  2. I LOVE this activity. What fun.

    It reminds me of when my boys were in preschool- we would fill a dirt area in the backyard with water and let them play in the mud. They LOVED it.

    You are giving your students a wonderful experience-
