Art idea - rubber band painting

It is easy to create painting materials by adding rubber bands to objects you have at home.

You can use an old shirt on backwards as a smock. Cut off the sleeves if they are too long.

Cut a thick rubber band and tape one end of it to the top of a pencil. Dip the rubber band in paint and move it across the paper. We add soap to the paint to make it easier to wash out of clothes.

Wrap rubber bands around a ball and roll it on paper to make designs. You can also roll it in a box back and forth with your child.
