We have a new favourite activity! Yesterday at Landcare we found a golfball amongst the rubbish washed up by recent floods. That little ball will now be treasured as a valuable art tool in our house. Golf ball printing is a reasonably clean way to make some stunning artwork. You could try it with any kind of ball really but I love the bumpy effect we got today.
All we needed was a sheet of paper cut to fit a baking tray, a ball and some paint.
We coated the ball in paint and placed it on the sheet of paper.
Priya was keen to lean how to tilt the tray herself and move the ball over the paper to create some lovely patterns.
We added another colour and then did three more paintings. By the end Priya was failing the temptation to pick up the ball. It is very hard to convince a child not to touch a ball when it is covered in paint.
What a delightful outcome for an activity that took virtually no time to set up. Like I said, a new favourite for both of us.
