Fly Swatter Painting



  • ~ Fly swatter
  • ~ Paints in a variety of colors
  • ~ Paper plates
  • ~ White paper


  • Let each child select 3-4 colors of paint.
  • Pour some of each color of paint onto a paper plate, so that there is a thin layer of paint covering most of the plate.
  • Dip the fly swatter into the paint, and then swat it down on the paper until the entire paper is covered in the colorful design.
  • Note: It is suggested to do this project outside, as there will be some paint splatter.
