Wacky painting is a great way to incorporate non-traditional painting methods, color mixing and fun! This works well as a reward activity or a special event for the end of the school year when you want to use up all your open bottles of paint. I created stations for 4-5 students. In the middle of the appropriate station, requiring Tempera paint, I placed 2 paper plates, 1 for each of the primary colors, red, yellow and blue (but any colors will work). Before the kids to begin they had to put on a paint shirt, then they received 5 pieces of paper, 1 for each station, and wrote their names on each piece. The papers were left on the child's carpet spot for easy access. I allowed 5-8 minutes per station. Each time we rotated a station the kids put the wet paper in the hallway to dry (this takes a lot of drying space, be sure you have it!) and took a clean piece of paper to use at the new station. The next day each child found his/her works of art to brought them home. This is a great activity to do before you clean your tables for the summer. It also makes the shaving cream, table cleaning activity really fun because the shaving cream turns colors!
