Credit Card Art

Always on the look out for different painting techniques that encourage the children to experiment with colours and patterns I decided to make use of the many redundant plastic cards that we have lying around the house!

To enhance colour awareness the children each chose their own colours and then used their card to dip in the paint and spread it across the paper in a pattern of their choice. As this was so easy it enabled even the younger ones to create their own art while enabling the older ones to demonstrate their imaginations through describing their pictures. 

As we used pearl acrylic paints the final results were both vibrant and sparkly and all so very different. This was a great little activities that we shall be trying again!
