Painting with household stuff

I read an article in Parent's Magazine that said when your child says the "b" word, "I'm bored," give them household things to play with.  Like the wisk or a papertowel roll.  Well we had these things laying around, not in the trash yet. 
So we painted with them.
It was fun to wonder what print it might make and if we changed the tube if it would make a different print.

  2. This is so fun! When I taught preschool (many, many years ago), I had the children roll old Matchbox cars through paint. Love the tissue roll idea! Michelle
