Painting on Felt

What to call this…I’m not sure…what we did was paint on a piece of felt. After another painting project we had paint leftover so we took it outside and painted a piece of white felt with cotton balls, sponges and pom poms. We used up all the paint and made a neat piece of art to hang on our wall.
What I liked about this activity:

1.  Everyone could participate at the same time and work together.
2.  No rules or directions. Anything goes.
3.  Colorful
4.  No waste/used up the paint.
5.  Outside project.
6.  Created decor for our wall.

[…] We have done things like Super Fun Syringe Painting, Bees Pollinate the Poppies, Icicle Drip Painting, Picnic Tablecloth painting, and Dipping, Soaking & Mixing. We take art outdoors even in the winter, paint outdoors on our easel and paint with sticks. We’ve made group art by painting on felt . […]

What a great way to complete a "no waste" paint philosophy! Adding different canvases and textures can really help to expand exploration, Thanks for linking up over at the PreKandK Sharing We LOVE Paint linky party!
