Scrunched paper printing in preschool

in Creative Art, Painting, Scrunched Paper Painting

This has to be one of the most simple, yet fun and easy to throw together painting activities ever!

Simply set out a variety of paint colors, a piece of paper, and scrap paper…

The children “scrunched” up the scrap paper….

Then dipped the scrunched paper into paint and made prints on their paper canvas…

The “scrunched” paper gets soggy after a bit so having available some fresh pieces of scrap paper to scrunch up as you go along is a good idea…

The children really took their time and stayed engaged in the process of scrunching and printing…

Even some children who don’t normally want to get paint on their hands gave this a try…

And then there were those who love the sensory experience of getting paint on their hands…

We had all kinds of prints in the end and a wonderful experience in the process…
