Swat paint printing in preschool

Any time I try a new idea I can’t help but get carried away. These were just as fun to make as they were to paint with.

Yesterday I shared how to make swatters with foam squares and straws. Today we used foam squares, foam stickers, and craft sticks.

Before decorating each foam square with craft foam stickers, we stapled the squares to a craft stick.

Then it was time to try a little printing with the paint and our new swatters.

This time we painted the swatters with a brush so we could add different colors on each of the shapes.

And then we gave a little swat on the paper!

We tried just dipping the swatter in the paint too…

The results were both fun and colorful!

Check out this wonderful and simple “I Spy Book” you can make with craft foam and craft stickers too!

Oh those look like a lot of fun! My daughter recently was gifted a bunch of foam stickers and I was trying to think of someway to re-use them! Thanks for the inspiration!
