No Mess Painting in a Bag Earth


To create our No Mess Earth Day Painting, you will need:

- white paper plates

- large plastic zippy bags 

- green and blue paint



First squirt a bit of green and blue paint on your child’s plate.


Then place the plate inside the bag and seal it.


After that, move the paint around the plate using both hands. (This is good mine motor skills practice!)


Then, once the whole plate is covered in paint carefully remove it from the bag to let it air dry.
