Multi-folded paint rubbings

in Children's Books, Creative Art, It Looked Like Spilt Milk

Paint rubbings is a process my students love to do over and over again. A paint rubbing is generally adding paint to a sheet of folded paper, closing the paper, rubbing the outside of the folded paper, then opening the paper up to view the results…

We always use this process as a follow-up to the book titled “It Looked Like Spilt Milk” By Charles G. Shaw

However, because paint rubbings are so interesting to my students, they also tend to go through a lot of paper and a lot of paint during the process…

So when my students asked if they could make paint rubbings again, I added another step to the paint rubbing process by having the children make several folds to their paper before adding their paint…

Folding paper is good practice in eye hand coordination and fine motor skills. We worked, as a large group, on folding our paper in half first, then folding our paper again to meet in the middle creating four folded lines on our paper in the end…

Once the children had folded their paper, then we invited them to start adding paint. Some of the children placed the paint in the fold of their paper and others added paint to the center of the folded lines…

Once the children had added their paint, they refolded the paper and opened it back up to see their designs…

A fairly simple process with an added step!
