The children LOVE the process - so much so that none of them even cared what their painting looked like at the end - they were satisfied completely with the process alone; and parents LOVE the finished product!
The process is easy-peasy, you'll just need any sort of box with a lid, paper, paint, glitter and some jingle bells of any size. Start with paper inside of the box and add some paint drops.
Add some glitter - any type will do. No worries all you despisers of glitter (I am one of you), the mess is contained in the box!
Toss in your bells and you are ready for the fun part!
Put the lid on your box and start shaking, rolling, turning and moving any which way you'd like!
When you've sung 'Jingle Bells' enough, and feel you are finished, you'll have this, which is even lovelier in person:
On a related note, we also did Marble Painted Candy Canes this week. Follow the same process using an open pan - beware of flying marbles!
