Creative art- using plastic back rollers
These are one of our favorite art tools. They are plastic back rollers from the Dollar store! The little nubs on the wheels make dots on the paper and they make noise too, which the kids love!
Sometimes we use them on big paper for the large arm movement of rolling back and forth, and sometimes we use them on the easel so they are rolling up and down or across the easel paper.
This project used white paint and black paper. The spots ended up looking like snow at night. We read the book "Snowmen at Night" to tie in a literacy activity. After they were done, we added a frame work to cover part of the picture to look like a snowflake. They came out pretty and it is a wonderful creative art activity.
The pictures even look like a snowstorm is happening.
