Painting with hammers on houses in preschool

Painting with hammers on houses in preschool

Another activity we tried in preschool was painting with hammers on houses! I wasn’t able to catch this activity in action but here is the basic idea…

A simple white house shape is glued to black construction paper…

The children draw doors and windows on their houses.

Dip the head of a toy hammer in tempera paint then hammer away on the house…

A little messy but lots of fun!

    Like you say, a little messy… but it’s a nice way for kids to be creative while letting out a little pent up energy.

    Deborah, I have painted with many things in my time…but never a hammer. I can’t wait to try it out!
