This is a quick art activity that is lots of fun and has great results. You will need a container such as an aluminum pie plate or shoebox. The only characteristic it really needs is sides of 1 inch or more. Cut a sheet of paper to fit on the bottom of the container. Have your child select one or two colors of paint and squirt a teaspoon of each color on the paper in the container. Now comes the fun part. Have you ever painted with marbles before? Well put a marble in the container and wiggle it and roll it. Watch your design grow. No two patterns will be alike.
