Snap Painting

This week the kids and I had a TON of fun doing the silly little art activity, snap painting. 

Supplies: an large old frame, a sheet of paper larger than your frame, washable paint, foam brushes, various size rubber bands. 

Step 1: pull rubber bands around frame

the kids were only able to do about half the bands, i helped with the rest

Step 2: paint top portion of rubber bands

you can see here that big buddy started to paint the bottom of the rubber
band too. it doesn't matter too much - it just makes it more difficult to
see the splatters. 

Step 3: snap the rubber bands

it makes a pretty cool snap sound on top of splattering
the paint - mini man thought it was hilarious

Step 4: repeat steps 2 & 3 until you are pleased with your design
